1 Ye servants of God I your Master proclaim, 
And publish abroad his wonderful name ; 
The name, all- victorious, of Jesus extol ; 
His kingdom is glorious and rules over all. 

2 God ruleth on high, almighty to save ; 
And still he is nigh — his presence we have : 
The great congregation his triumph shall 

sing, 
Ascribing salvation to Jesus, our King. 



3 Salvation to God, who sits on the throne ! 
Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son: 
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim, 
Fall down on their faces and worship the 

Lamb. 

4 Then let us adore, and give him his right, 
All glory and power, and wisdom and -light, 
All honor and blessing, with angels above, 
And thanks never ceasing, and infinite love.

1 Before Jehovah's awful throne, 
Ye nations, bow with sacred joy : 
Know that the Lord is God alone ; 
He can create, and he destroy. 

His sovereign power, without our aid. 
Made us of clay, and formed us men : 

And when, like wandering sheep, we strayed, 
He brought us to his fold again. 

3 We are his people, we his care, 

Our souls, and all our mortal frame : 
What lasting honors shall we rear, 
Almighty Maker 1 to thy name ? 

I We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs : 
High as the heavens our voices raise ; 
And earth, with her ten thousand tongues, 
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 

5 Wide as the world ia thy command, 
Vast as eternity, thy love ; 
f irm as a rock thy truth must stand, 
When rolling years shall cease to move. 

3 

1 Ye nations round the earth, rejoice 

Before the Lord, your sovereign King ; 
Serve him with cheerful heart and voice ; 
With all your tongues his glory sing. 

2 The Lord is God : 'tis he alone 

Doth life and breath and being give ; 
Wo are his work, and not our own ; 
The sheep that on his pastures live. 

3 Enter his gates with songs of joy ; 

With praises to bis courts repair: 



I I 



And make it your divine employ 
To pay your thanks and honors there 

4 The Lord is good, the Lord is kind : 
Great is his grace, his mercy sure ; 
And the whole race of man shall find 
His truth from age to age endure. 

4 

1 All people that on earth do dwell. 

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice : 
Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell 
Come ye before him and rejoice. 

2 Know that the Lord is God indeed ; 

Without our aid he did us make ; 
We are his flock, he doth us feed, 
And for his sheep he doth us take. 

3 Oh, enter then his gates with praise, 

Approach with joy his courts unto 
Praise, laud and bless his name alwayp. 
For it is seemly so to do 

4 Because the Lord oui: God is good. 

His mercy is for ever sure : 
His truth at all times firmly stood, 
And shall from age to age endure. 



1 From all that dwell below the skies, 
Let the Creator's praise arise : 

Let the Redeemer's name be sung 
Through every land, by every tongue. 

2 Eternal are thy mercies. Lord ; 
Eternal truth attends thy word ; 

Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, 
Till suns shall set and rise no more.

1 To God, the great, the ever-blessed, 
Let songs of honor be addressed ; 
His mercy firm for ever stands ; 

Give him the thanks his love demands. 

2 Who knows the wonders of thy ways ? 
Who shall fulfill thy boundless praise ? 
Blessed are the souls that fear thee still, 
And pay their duty to thy will. 

3 Remember what thy mercy did 
For Jacob's race, thy chosen seed : 
And, with the same salvation, bless 
The meanest suppliant of thy grace. 

4 Oh ! may I see thy tribes rejoice, 
And aid their triumphs with my voice : 
This is my glory, Lord, to be 

Joined to thy saints, and near to thee.

1 Praise ye the Lord, exalt his name. 

While in his earthly courts ye wait. 
Ye saints that to his house belong, 
Or stand attending at his gate. 

2 Praise ye the Lord, the Lord is good ; 

To praise his name is sweet employ ; 
Israel he chose of old, and still 
His church is his peculiar joy. 

3 The Lord himself will judge his saints; 

He treats b is servants as his friends ; 



And when he hears their sore complaints. 
Repents the sorrows that he sends. 

4 Through every age the Lord declares 

His name, and breaks th' oppressor's rod , 
He gives his sufi'ering servants rest, 
And will be known th' Almighty God. 

5 Bless ye the Lord who taste his love ; 

People and priests, exalt his name ; 
Among his saints he ever dwells ; 
His church is his Jerusalem. 

8 

1 Around the Saviour's lofty throne. 

Ten thousand times ten thousand sing, 
They worship him as God alone, 
And crown him — everlasting King. 

2 Approach, ye saints ! this God is yours ; 

'Tis Jesus fills the throne above : 

Ye cannot want while God endures; 

Ye cannot fail while God is ove. 

3 Jesus, thou everlasting King I 

To thee the praise of heave ti belongs ; 
Yet, smile on us who fain woi ild bring 
The tribute of our humble songs. 

4 Though sin defile our worship here. 

We hope ere long thy face to view ; 

And when our souls in heaven appear, 

We'll praise thy name as angels do.

1 Come, ye that love the Saviour's name, 

And joy to make it known ! 
The sovereign of your hearts proclaim. 
And bow before his throne. 

2 Behold your King, your Saviour, crowned, 

AVith glories all-di\dne ! 
And tell the wondering nations round, 
How bright these glories shine. 

3 Infinite power, and boundless grace, 

In him unite their rays ; 
You, that have e'er beheld his face ! 
Can you forbear his praise ? 

4 When, in his earthly courts, we view 

The glories of our King, 
We long to love as angels do, 
And wish like them to sing. 

5 And shall we long and wish in vain? 

Lord ! teach our songs to rise ; 
Thy love can animate the strain, 
And bid it reach the skies. 

10 

1 SiXQ to the Lord, ye distant lands 1 

Ye tribes of every tongue ! 
His new-discovered grace demands 
A new and nobler song. 

2 Say to the nations, — " Jesus reigns, 

God's own Almighty Son ; 
His power the sinking world sustains, 
And grace surrounds his throne." 
10 



3 Let heaven proclaim the joyful day ; 

Joy through the earth be seen ; 
Let cities shine in bright array, 
And fields in cheerful green. 

4 Let an unusual joy surprise 

The islands of the sea ; 
Ye mountains ! sink ; ye valleys ! rise ; 
Prepare the Lord his way. 

5 Behold, he comes, — he comes to bless 

The nations, as their God ; 
To show the world his righteousness, 
And send his truth abroad. 



11 



1 Come, shout aloud the Father's grace, 

And sing the Saviour's love ; 
Soon shall you join the glorious theme, 
In loftier strains above. 

2 God, the eternal, mighty God, 

To dearer names descends ; 
Calls you his treasure, and his joy, 
His children and his friends. 

3 My Father, God! and may these lips 

Pronounce a name so dear? 
Not thus could heaven's sweet harmony 
Delight my listening ear. 

4 Thanks to my God for every gift 

His bounteous hands bestow ; 
And thanks eternal for that love 
Whence all those comforts flow.

1 Come, sound his praise abroad, 

And hymns of glory sing ; 
Jehovah is the sovereign God, 
The universal King. 

2 He formed the deeps unknown ; 

He gave the seas their bound ; 
The watery worlds are all his own, 
And all the solid ground. 

3 Come, worship at his throne ; 

Come, bow before the Lord : 
We are his works, and not our own 
He formed us by his word. 

4 To-day attend his voice. 

Nor dare provoke his rod : 
Come, like the people of his choice. 
And own your gracious God. 



1 Now let our songs arise. 

In new exalted strains : 
Let earth repeat it to the skies ; — 
The Lord, the Saviour reigns ! 

2 Sing to the Lord, our God, 

And bless his sacred name ; 

His great salvation, all abroad. 

From day to day proclaim. 

S Mid heathen nations place 
The glories of his throne ; 



And let the wonders of his grace 
Through all the earth be known. 

4 Great is th' eternal Lord, 

And great must be his praise : 

O'er all the gods, on high adored. 

His mightier arm he '11 raise. 

5 Through earth, let every tribe, 

Let every nation, sing : 
Glory, and grace, and might ascribe 
To our eternal King. 



14 



1 Awake, and sing the song 

Of Moses and the Lamb ; 
Wake, every heart, and every tongue 1 
To praise the Saviour's name, 

2 Sing of his dying love ; 

Sing of his rising power : 
Sing — how he intercedes above 
For those whose sins he bore. 

3 Sing on your heavenly way, 

Ye ransomed sinners ! sing ; 
Sing on, rejoicing, every day, 
In Christ, th' eternal King. 

4 Soon shall ye hear him say, 

" Ye blessed children ! come ;" 
Soon will he call you hence away^ 
And take his wanderers h( me.

And let our joys be known :

1 Songs of praise the angels sang ; 
Heav'n with hallelujahs rang, 
When Jehovah's work begun, 
When he spake and it was done. 

2 Songs of praise awoke the morn 
When the Prince of Peace was born ; 
Songs of praise arose when he 
Captive led captivity. 

3 Heaven and earth must pass away. 
Songs of praise shall crown that day ; 
God will make new heavens and earth, 
Songs of praise shall hail their birth. 

4 And can man alone be dumb, 
Till that glorious kingdom come ? 
No, the Church delights to raise 
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 

5 Saints below, with heart and voice, 
Still in songs of praise rejoice : 
Learning here, by faith and love, 
Songs of praise to sing above. 

6 Hymns of glory, songs of praise. 
Father, unto thee we raise ; 
Jesus, glory unto thee. 

With the Spirit, ever be.

1 Let us, with a gladsome mind, 
Praise the Lord, for he is kind: 
14 



For his mercies shall endure 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

Let us sound his name abroad, 
For of gods he is the God : 
For his mercies shall endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

He, with all-commanding might, 
Filled the new-made world with light: 
For his mercies shall endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

All things living he doth feed ; 
His full hand supplies their need : 
For his mercies shall endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

He his chosen race did bless 
In the wasteful wilderness : 
For his mercies shall endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

He hath, with a piteous eye, 
Looked upon our misery : 
For his mercies shall endure, 
Ever faithful, ever sure. 

Let us then with gladsome mind, 
Praise the Lord, for he is kind ; 
For his mercies shall endure. 
Ever faithful, ever sure.

1 Sweet is the work, my God, my King, 

To praise thy name, give thanks and sing, 
To show thy love by morning light, 
And talk of all thy truth at night. 

2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest ; 

No mortal cares shall seize my breast ; 
Oh, may my heart in tune be found, 
Like David's harp of solemn sound 1 

3 My heart shall triumph in my Lord, 
And bless his works and bless his word ; 
Thy works of grace how bright they shine ! 
How deep thy counsels ! how divine 1 

4 Lord, I shall share a glorious part, 
When grace hath well refined ray heart. 
And fresh supplies of joy are shed. 
Like holy oil to cheer my head. 

5 Then shall I see, and hear, and know 
All I desired or wished below ; 

And every power find sweet employ 

In that eternal world of joy.

Above, beneath us, and around. 
The dead and living swell the sound. 

3 Saviour ! with protecting care, 
Return to this thy house of prayer. 
Assembled in thy sacred name. 
Where we thy parting promise claim. 

4 But, chiefest, in our cleansed fc reast. 
Eternal ! bid thy Spirit rest, 

And make our secret soul to be 
A temple pure, and worthy thee. 

5 So, in the last and dreadful day, 

When earth and heaven shall melt away, 
Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain, 
Shall swell the sound of praise again.

1 God of my life ! through all my days, 

My grateful powers shall sound thy praise ; 
The song shall wake with opening light, 
And warble to the silent night. 

2 When anxious cares would break my rest. 
And griefs would tear my throbbing breast. 
Thy tuneful praises, raised on high. 

Shall check the murmur and the sigh. 

3 When death o'er nature shall prevail, 
And all its powers of language fail ; 

Joy thro' my swimming eyes shall break, 
And mean the thanks I cannot speak. 

4 But, oh ! when that last conflict's o'er, 
And I am chained to flesh no more, 
With what glad accents shall I rise 
To join the music of the skies. 

) Soon shall I learn th' exalted strains, 
Which echo o'er the heavenly plains, 
And emulate, with joy unknown, 
The glowing seraphs round thy throne. 

23 

1 Bless, my soul, the living God, 

Call home thy thoughts that rove abroad ; 
Let all the powers within me join 
In work and worship so divine. 

2 Bless, my soul, the God of grace ; 
Hia favors claim thy highest praise ; 

2 



Why should the wonders he hath wrought 
Be lost in silence, and forgot ? 

3 'Tis he, my soul, that sent his Son 

To die for crimes which thou hast done ; 
He owns the ransom, and forgives 
The hourly follies of our lives. 

4 Let the whole earth his power confess, 
Let the whole earth adore his grace ; 
The Gentile with the Jew shall join 
In work and worship so divine. 

24 

1 My God ! accept my early vows. 
Like morning incense in thy house ; 
And let my nightly worship rise, 
Sweet as the evening sacrifice. 

2 Watch o'er my lips, and guard them, Lord, 
From every rash and heedless word ; 

Nor let my feet incline to tread 
The guilty path where sinners lead. 

3 Oh ! may the righteous, when I stray, 
Smite, and reprove my wandering way ; 
Their gentle words, like ointment shed. 
Shall never bruise, but cheer my head. 

4 When I behold them pressed with grief 
I'll cry to heaven for their relief; 
And, by my warm petitions, prove 
How much I prize their faithful love.

Loving kindness, loving kindness, His lov-ing kind - ness, oh, how free! 




25 



1 Awake, my soul, in joyful lays. 

And sing thy great Redeemer's praise ; 
He justly claims a song from thee, 
His loving-kindness, oh, how free ! 

2 He saw me ruined in the fall, 
Yet loved me notwithstanding all ; 
He saved me from my lost estate. 
His loving-kindness, oh, how great ! 

3 Though num'rous hosts of mighty foes, 
Though earth and hell my way oppose, 
He safely leads my soul along. 

His loving-kindness, oh, how strong! 

MORNING HYMN. 



4 "When trouble, like a gloomy cloud. 
Has gathered thick, and thundered loud. 
He near my soul has always stood. 

His loving-kindness, oh, how good I 

5 Often I feel my sinful heart 
Prone from my Saviour to depart ; 
But, though I oft have him forgot, 
His loving-kindness changes not. 



6 Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale. 
Soon all my mortal powers must fail ; 
Oh, may my last expiring breath 
His loving-kindness sing in death.

1 What equal honors shall we bring 

To thee, Lord, our God, the Lamb ! 
When all the notes, that angels sing, 
Are far inferior to thy name? 

2 Worthy is he who once was slain, — 

The Prince of peace, who groaned and 
Worthy to rise, and live, and reign, [died — 
At his almighty Father's side. 

3 Blessings for ever on the Lamb, 

Who bore the curse for wretched men : 
Let angels sound his sacred name, 
And everj' creature say, — Amen. 

27 

1 Now be my heart inspired, to sing 
The glories of my Saviour King ; 
Jesus, the Lord, — how heavenly fair 
His form ! how bright his beauties are ! 

2 O'er all the sons of human race. 
He shines with a superior grace ; 
Love from his lips divinely flows. 
And blessings all his state compose. 

3 Thy throne, God ! for ever stands ; 
Grace is the sceptre in thy hands ; 
Thy laws and works are just and right 1 
Justice and grace are thy deUght. 



4 God, thine own God, has richly shed 
His oil of gladness on thy head ; 
And, with his sacred Spirit, blest 
His first-born Son above the rest. 



28 



1 Now to the Lord a noble song : 
Awake, my soul, awake, my tongue ; 
Hosanna to the eternal name, 

And all his boundless love proclaim. 

2 See where it shines in Jesus' face, 
The brightest image of his grace ; 
God, in the person of his Son, 

Has all his mightiest works outdone. 

3 The spacious earth and spreading flood 
Proclaim the wise and powerful God ; 
And thy rich glories from afar 
Sparkle in every rolling star. 

4 Grace ! 'tis a sweet, a charming theme, 
My thoughts rejoice in Jesus' name ; 
Ye angels, dwell upon the sound, 

Ye heavens, reflect it to the ground. 



5 Oh ! may I reach that happy place, 
Where he unveils his lovely fa* e. 
Where all his beauties you behold, 
And sing his name to harps of gold.

1 Praise ye the Lord !— my heart shall join 
In work so pleasant, so divine : 

My days of praise shall ne'er be past, 
AVhile life, and thought, and being last. 

2 Happy the man, whose hopes rely 
On Israel's God ; he made the sky. 
And earth, and seas, with all their train. 
And none shall find his promise vain. 

3 His truth for ever stands secure; 

He saves th' oppressed, he feeds the poor ; 
He helps the stranger in distress, 
The widow and the fatherless. 

4 He loves his saints, — he knows them w^ell. 
But turns the wicked down to hell : 

Thy God, O Zion ! ever reigns ; 
Praise him in everlasting strains. 

30 

1 My God ! my king ! thy various praise 
Shall fill the remnant of my days ; 
Thy grace employ my humble tongue, 
Till death and glory raise the song. 

2 The wings of every hour shall bear 
Some thankful tribute to thine ear; 
And every setting sun shall see 
New works of duty, done for thee. 

8 Thy works with sovereign glory shine 
And speak thy majesty divine ; 
20 



Let every realm with joy proclaim 
The sound and honor of thy name. 

4 Let distant times and nations raise 
The long succession of thy praise ; 
And unborn ages make my song 
The joy and labor of their tongue. 

5 But who can speak thy wondrous deeds? 
Thy greatness all our thoughts exceeds ; 
Vast and unsearchable thy ways, — 
Vast and immortal be thy praise. 

31 

1 Come, my soul, in sacred lays, 
Attempt thy great Creator's praise ; 

But oh ! what tongue can sj^eak his fame? 
What mortal verse can reach the theme ? 

2 Enthroned amidst the radiant spheres, 
He glory, like a garment, wears ; 

To form a robe of light divine. 

Ten thousand suns around him shine. 

3 In all our Maker's grand designs, 
Omnipotence with wisdom shines ; 

His works, through all this wondrous frame. 
Bear the great impress of his name. 

4 Raised on devotion's lofty wing, 
Do thou, my soul ! his glories sing ; 
And let his praise employ thy tongue, 
Tir /istening worlds repeat the song.

Let angels prostrate fall ; 
Bring forth the royal diadem, 
And crown him — Lord of all.

Hail him, who saves you by his grace,

We'll join the everlasting song, 
And crown him — Lord of all.

1 Oh ! for a thousand tongues to sing 

My dear Redeemer's praise ! 
The glories of my God and King, 
The triumphs of his grace ! 

2 My gracious Master and my God ! 

Assist me to proclaim, 
To spread, through all the earth abroad, 
The honors of thy name. 

3 Jesus— the name that calms my fears. 

That bids my sorrows cease ; 
'T is music to my ravished ears ; 
'Tis life, and health, and peace. 

4 He breaks the power of reigning sin, 

He sets the pris'ner free ; 
His blood can make the foulest clean ; 
His blood availed for me. 

5 Let us obey, we then shall know, 

Shall feel our sins forgiven ; 
Anticipate our heaven below, 
And own, that love is heaven. 



o4 



1 Arise, my soul, my joyful powers, 

And triumph in thy God ; 
Awake, my voice, and loud proclaim 
His glorious grace abroad. 

2 The arms of everlasting love 

Beneath my soul he placed, 
22 



And on the Rock of ages set 
My slippery footsteps fast. 

3 The city of my blest abode 

Is walled around with grace ; 
Salvation for a bulwark stands. 
To shield the sacred place. 

4 Arise, my soul, awake, my voice, 

And tunes of pleasure sing ; 
Loud hallelujahs shall address 
My Saviour and my King. 

35 

1 To our Redeemer's glorious name, 

Awake the sacred song ! 
Oh ! may his love — immortal flame — 
Tune every heart and tongue ! 

2 His love, what mortal thought can reach f 

What mortal tongue display? 
Imagination's utmost stretch, 
In wonder, dies away. 

3 Dear Lord ! while we adoring pay 

Our humble thanks to thee. 
May every heart with rapture say, 
" The Saviour died for me !" 

4 Oh ! may the sweet, the blissful theme, 

Fill every heart and tongue. 
Till strangers love thy charming name, 
And join the sacred song.

1 Come, let us join our cheerful songs, 

With angels round the throne ; 
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues. 
But all their joys are one. 

2 " Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry, 

" To be exalted thus !" 
" Worthy the Lamb," our lips reply, 
" For he was slain for us !" 

S Jesus is worthy to receive 
Honor and power divine ; 
And blessings, more than we can give, 
Be, Lord ! for ever thine. 

4 Let all who dwell above the sky. 

And air, and earth, and seas, 
Conspire to lift thy glories high, 
And speak thine endless praise. 

5 The whole creation join in one, 

To bless the sacred name 
Of him who sits upon the throne, 
And tc adore the Lamb. 



37 



1 Come, happy souls ! approach your God, 
With new melodious songs ; 



Come render to Almighty grace 
The tribute of your tongues. 

So strange, so boundless was the love, 

That pitied dying men. 
The Father sent his equal Son, 

To give them life again. 

Thy hands, dear Jesus ! were not armed 

With a revenging rod ; 
No hard commission to perform 

The vengeance of a God. 

But all was mercy, all was mild. 
And wrath forsook the throne. 

When Christ, on the kind errand, came, 
And brought salvation down. 

Here, sinners! you may heal your wounds, 

And wipe your sorrows dry ; 
Trust in the mighty Saviour's name, 

And you shall never die. 

See, dearest Lord ! our willing souls 

Accept thine offered grace ; 
We bless the great Redeemer's love, 

And give the Father praise.

1 Yes, I will bless thee, my God, 

Through all my mortal days; 
And to eternity prolong 
Thy vast, thy boundless praise. 

2 Nor shall my tongue alone proclaim 

The honors of my God ; 
My life, with all its active powers, 
Shall spread thy praise abroad. 

3 Not death itself shall stop my song. 

Though death will close my eyes : 
My thoughts shall then to nobler heights. 
And sweeter raptures rise. 

i There shall my lips in endless praise. 
Their grateful tribute pay ; 
The theme demands an angel's tongue, 
And an eternal day. 

39 

I With my whole heart I'll raise my song, 
Thy wonders I'll proclaim ; 
Thou, sovereign Judge of right and wrong. 
Wilt put thy foes to shame. 

3 I'll sing thy majesty and grace ; 
My God prepares his throne 
To judge the world in righteousness, 
And make his justice known. 

3 Then shall tlie Lord a refuge prove 
For all the poor oppressed, 
24 



To save the people of his love. 
And give the weary rest. 

4 The men that know thy name, will trust 

In thy abundant grace ; 
For thou wilt ne'er forsake the just, 
Who humbly seek thy face. 

5 Sing praises to the righteous Lord, 

Who dwells on Sion's hill. 
Who executes his threatening word, 
And doth his grace fulfill. 

40 

1 Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme, 

And speak some boundless thing. 
The mighty works, or mightier name, 
Of our eternal King. 

2 Tell of his wondrous faithfulness. 

And sound his power abroad ; 
Sing the sweet promise of his grace. 
And the performing God. 

3 His very word of grace is strong, 

As that which built the skies ; 
The voice that rolls the stars along, 
Speaks all the promises. 

4 Oh, might I hear thy heavenly tongue 

But whisper, " Thou art mine !" 
Those gentle words should raise my song 
To notes almost divine.

1 Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear 

My voice ascending high ; 
To thee will I direct my prayer, 
To thee lift up mine eye : 

2 Up to the hills where Christ is gone 

To plead for all his saints, 
Presenting at his Father's throne 
Our songs and our complaints. 

3 Thou art a God before whose sight 

The wicked shall not stand : 
Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight, 
Nor dwell at thy right hand. 

4 But to thy house will I resort, 

To taste thy mercies there ; 
I will frequent thy holy court, 
And worship in thy fear. 

h Oh, may thy Spirit guide my feet 
In ways of righteousness I 
Make every path of duty straight 
And plain before my face. 



42 



1 Thee will I bless, my God and King, 

Thy endless praise proclaim ; 
This tribute daily I will bring. 
And ever bless thy Name. 

2 Thou, Lord, beyond compare art great. 

And highly to be praised : 



Thy majesty with boundless height, 
Above our knowledge raised. 

3 Renown'd for mighty acts, thy fame 

To future time extends ; 
From age to age thy glorious Name 
Successively descends. 

4 Whilst I thy glory and renown. 

And wondrous works express. 
The world with me thy might shall own 
And thy great power confess. 

43 

1 Let them neglect thy glory. Lord, 

Who never knew thy grace ; 
But our loud songs shall still record 
The wonders of thy praise. 

2 We raise our shouts, God, to thee, 

And send them to thy throne : 
All glory to the United Three, 
The undivided One. 

3 'Twas he, and we'll adore his name, 

That formed us by a word ; 
'Tis he restores our ruined frame: 
Salvation to the Ix)rd ! 

4 Hosanna! let the earth and skies 

Repeat the joyful sound ; 
Rocks, hills and vales, reflect the voice 
In one eternal round

1 What shall I render to my God 

For all his kindness shown ? 
My feet shall visit thine abode, 
My songs address thy throne. 

2 Among the saints that fill thy house, 

My ojBferings shall be paid ; 
There shall my zeal perform the vows 
My soul in anguish made. 

3 How much is mercy thy delight. 

Thou ever-blessed God ! 
How dear thy servants in thy sight — 
How precious is their blood 1 

4 How happy all thy servants are I 

How great thy grace to me I 
My life, which thou hast made thy care, 
Lord 1 I devote to thee. 

6 Now I am thine — for ever thine ; 
Nor shall my purpose move ; 
Thy hand bath loosed my bonds of pain,

And thy rich grace record ; 

"Witness, ye saints ! who hear me now. 

If I forsake the Lord.

1 Through all the changing scenes of life, 

In trouble, and in joy. 
The praises of my God shall still

2 Of his deliverance I will boast. 

Till all who are distressed, 
From my example comfort take, 
And charm their griefs to rest. 

3 Oh ! magnify the Lord with me, 

With me exalt his name ; 
When in distress to him I called, 
He to my rescue came. 

4 The hosts of God encamp arouna 

The dwellings of the just ; 
Deliverance he afibrds to all. 
Who on his succor trust. 

5 Oh ! make but trial of his love ; 

Experience will decide. 
How blest are they, and only they, 
Who in his truth confide. 

6 Fear him, ye saints ! and you will then 

Have nothing else to fear ; 
Make you his service your delight,— 
Your wants shall be his care.

1 Early, my God, without delay, 

I haste to seek thy face ; 
My thirsty spirit faints away, 
"Without thy cheering grace. 

2 I 've seen thy glory and thy power 

Through all thy temple shine ; 
My God, repeat that heavenly hour. 
That vision so divine. 

5 Not all the blessings of a feast 
Can please my soul so well. 
As when thy richer grace I taste, 
And in thy presence dwell. 

4 Not life itself, with all its joys, 

Can my best passions move. 
Or raise so high my cheerful voice. 
As thy forgiving love. 

5 Thus till my last expiring day^ 

I '11 bless my God and King ; 
Thus will I lift my hands to pray. 
And tune my lips to sing.

I My Saviour ! my almighty Friend ; 
When I begin thy praise, 



Where will the growing numbers end, 
The numbers of thy grace ? 

2 Thou art my everlasting trust ; 
Thy goodness I adore ; 
And, since I knew thy graces first, 
I speak thy glories more. 



3 My feet shall travel all the length 

Of the celestial road ; 
And march, with courage in thy strength, 
To see my father God. 

4 When I am filled with sore distress 

For some surprising sin, 
I '11 plead thy perfect righteousness, 
And mention none but thine. 

5 How will my lips rejoice to tell 

The victories of my King ! 
My soul, redeemed from sin and b«ll, 
Shall thy salvation sing. 

6 Awake, awake, my tuneful powers I 

With this delightful song, 

I '11 entertain the darkest hours, 

Nor think the season long.

1 To God the only wise, 

Our Saviour and our King, 
Let all the saints, below the skies, 
Their humble praises bring. 

2 'Tis his almighty love, 

His counsel and his care, 
Preserve us safe from sin and death, 
And every hurtful snare. 

3 He will present our souls. 

Unblemished and complete. 
Before the glory of his face. 
With joys divinely great. 

♦ Then all the chosen seed 

Shall meet around the throne ; 

Shall bless the conduct of his grace, 

And make his wonders known. 

h To our Redeemer God, 

Wisdom and power belong. 
Immortal crowns of majesty. 
And everlasting song. 



49 



1 My soul I repeat his praise, 

Whose mercies are so great ; 
Whose anger is so slow to rise, 
So ready to abate. 

2 High as the heavens are raised 

Above the ground we tread. 
So far the riches of his grace 
Our highest thoughts exceed. 
28 



I 
3 His power subdues our sins. 
And his forgiving love, 
Far as the east is from the west, 
Doth all our guilt remove. 

50 

1 The pity of the Lord, 

To those who fear his name, 

Is such as tender parents feel ; 

He knows our feeble frame. 

2 Our days are as the grass, 

Or like the morning flower ; 
If one sharp blast sweep o'er the field, 
It withers in an hour, 

3 But thy compassions, Lord ! 

To endless years endure ; 
And children's children ever find 
Thy words of promise sure. 



51 



1 To BLESS thy chosen race, 

In mercy. Lord ! incline ; 
And cause the brightness of thy face 
On all thy saints to shine ; 

2 That so thy wondrous way 

May through the world be known ; 
While distant lands their tribute pay. 
And thy salvation own. 

3 Oh ! let them shout and sing. 

With joy and pious mirth ; 
For thou, the righteous judge and king, 
Shalt govern all the eartli.

And aid my tongue to bless his name, 
Whose favors are divine. 

2 Oh, bless the Lord, my soul. 

Nor let his mercies lie 
Forgotten in unthankfulness. 
And without praises die. 

3 Tis he forgives thy sins, 

'Tis he relieves thy pain, 
'Tis he that heals thy sicknesses, 
And makes thee young again. 

4 He crowns thy life with love. 

When ransomed from the grave ; 
He that redeemed my soul from hell 
Hath sovereign power to save. 

53 

1 See what a living stone 

The builders did refuse ; 
Yet God hath built his church thereon, 
In spite of envious Jews. 

2 The work, Lord ! is thine, 

And wondrous in our eyes ; 
This day declares it all divine, 
This day did Jesus rise. 

3 This is the glorious day 

That our Redeemer made ; 



w 



Let us rejoice, and sing, and pray, 
Let all the church be glad. 

4 Hosanna to the King 

Of David's royal blood : 
Bless him, ye saints ! he comes, to bring 
Salvation from your God. 

5 We bless thy holy word. 

Which all this grace displays ; 
And oflfer on thine altar. Lord ! 
Our sacrilSce of praise. 

54 

1 Sweet is the work, Lord ! 

Thy glorious name to sing. 
To praise, and pray, to hear thy word, 
And grateful offerings bring. 

2 Sweet — at the dawning light. 

Thy boundless love to tell. 
And when approach the shades of night. 
Still on the theme to dwell. 

3 Sweet — on this day of rest, 

To join, in heart and voice, 
With those who love and serve thee best, 
And in thy nan^'e rejoice. 

4 To songs of praise and joy 

Be every Sabbath given, 
That such may be our blest employ 
Eternally in heaven.

1 I 'll praise my Maker with my breath ; 
And when my voice is lost in death, 

Praise shall employ my nobler powers : 
My days of praise shall ne'er be past, 
While life, and thought, and being last, 

Or immortality endures. 

2 Happy the man, whose hopes rely 
On Israel's God : he made the sky, 

And earth, and seas, with all their train ; 
His truth for ever stands secure ; 
He saves the oppressed, he feeds the poor ; 

And none shall find his promise vain. 

3 The Lord hath eyes to give the blind ; 

The Lord supports the sinking mind ; 

He sends the laboring conscience peace ; 
80 



He helps the stranger in distress, 
The widow and the fatherless. 
And grants the prisoner sweet release. 

4 I '11 praise him while he lends me breath ; 
And when my voice is lost in death. 

Praise shall employ my nobler powers : 
My days of praise shall ne'er be past. 
While life, and thought, and being last, 

Or immortality endures. 

DOXOLOQY. 

Now to the great and sacred Three, 
The Father, Son, and Spirit, be 

Eternal praise and glory given. 
Through all the worlds where God is known. 
By all the angels near the throne. 

And all the saints in earth and heaven.

Wide through the earth abroad 

Spread Jesus' name : 
Tell what his love has done, 
Trust in his grace alone ; 
Shout to his lofty throne, 

"Worthy the Lamb!" 

2 Hence, gloomy doubts and fears ! 
Dry up your mournful tears ; 

Swell the glad theme ; 
Praise ye our gracious King, 
Strike each melodious string, 
Join heart and voice to sing, 

" Worthy the Lamb !" 

3 Hark! how the choirs above. 
Filled with the Saviour's love, 

Dwell on his name ! 
There, too, may we be found. 
With light and glory crowned, 
While all the heavens resound, 

"Worthy the Lamb!" 



57 



I Glory to God on high ! 
Let praises fill the sky ; 

Praise ye his name ; 
Angels ! his name adore.

Sealing our peace with God, 
Spread his dear fame abroad,

In him we will rejoice, 
Making a cheerful noise.

Our souls shall never cease 

Praising his name ; 
To him we '11 tribute bring. 
Laud him our gracious King,

Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell 

your anguish ;

1 Lord 1 we come before thee now, 
At thy feet we humbly bow ; 

Oh ! do not our suit disdain ! 
Shall we seek thee, Lord ! in vain ? 

2 Lord, on thee our souls depend, 
In compassion, now descend ; 

Fill our hearts with thy rich grace, 
Tune our lips to sing thy praise. 

3 In thine own appointed way, 
Now we seek thee, here we stay ; 
Lord ! we know not how to go, 
Till a blessing thou bestow. 

4 Send some message from thy word. 
That may joy and peace afford ; 
Let thy Spirit now impart 

Full salvation to each heart. 

5 Comfort those who weep and mourn, 
Let the time of joy return ; 

Those, who are cast down, lift up, 
Strong in faith, in love and hope. 

6 Grant, that those who seek may find 
Thee, a God supremely kind : 

Heal the sick, the captive free, 
Let us all rejoice in thee. 



1 Come, my soul, thy suit prepare, 
Jesus loves to answer prayer ; 
He himself has bid thee pray. 
Therefore will not say thee nay. 

2 Thou art coming to a King, 
Large petitions with thee bring ; 
For his grace and power are such. 
None can ever ask too much. 

3 With my burden I begin. 
Lord, remove this load of sin ; 
Let thy blood, for sinners spilt. 
Set my conscience free from guilt. 

4 Lord, I come to thee for rest, 
Take possession of my breast ; 

There thy blood-bought right maintain, 
And without a rival reign. 

5 While I am a pilgrim here, 
Let thy love my spirit cheer ; 

As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend, 
Lead me to my journey's end. 

6 Show me what I have to do. 

Every hour my strength renew : 

Let me live a life of faith. 

Let me die thy people's death.

1 Behold the throne of grace ! 

The promise calls me near : 
There Jesus shows a smiling face, 
And waits to answer prayer. 

2 That rich atoning blood, 

Which sprinkled round I see, 
Provides, for those who come to God, 
An all-prevailing plea. 

3 My soul ! ask what thou wilt ; 

Thou canst not be too bold ; 
Since his own blood for thee he spilt, 
What else can he withhold ? 

4 Thine image, Lord ! bestow 

Thy presence and thy love ; 

I ask to serve thee here below. 

And reign with thee above. 

£ Teach me to live by faith ; 
Conform my will to thine ; 
Let me victorious be in death. 
And then in glory shine. 



Then let us wait till he appear, 
And pray, and pray again. 

3 Jesus, the Lord, will hear 

His chosen when they cry ; 
Yes, though he may a while forbear, 
He '11 help them from on high. 

4 Then let us earnest cry. 

And never faint in prayer ; 
He sees, he hears, and from on high, 
Will make our cause his care.

1 Je-sus, who knows full well 

Tlie heart of every saint, 
Invites us, all our grief to tell, 
To pray and never faint. 

2 He bows his gracious ear, — 

We never plead in vain ; 
34 



1 Oh, blessed souls are they, 

Whose sins are covered o'er ; 

Divinely blest, to whom the Lord 

Imputes their guilt no more. 

2 They mourn their follies past, 

And keep their hearts with care, 
Their lips and lives, without deceit 
Shall prove their faith sincere. 

3 While T concealed my guilt, 

I felt the festering wound ; 
Till I confessed my sins to thee, 
And ready pardon found. 



4 Let sinners learn to pray ; 

Let saints keep near thy throne : 
Our help in times of deep distress, 
Is found in God alone.

1 Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat, 

Where Jesus answers prayer ; 
There humbly fall before his feet, 
For none can perish there. 

2 Thy promise is my only plea, 

With this I venture nigh ; 
Thou callest burden'd souls to thee, 
And such, Lord, am I. 

3 Bow'd down beneath a load of sin. 

By Satan sorely press'd, 

57". FULBERT. 



By war without, and fears within, 
I come to thee for rest.

That, shelter'd near thy side, 
I may my fierce accuser face, 
And tell him, thou hast died. 

5 Oh, wondrous love, to bleed and die. 

To bear the Cross and shame. 
That guilty sinners such as I 
Might plead thy gracious Name.

1 Lonu, teach us how to pray aright 

With reverence and with fear : 
Though dust and ashes in thy sight, 
We may, we must draw near. 

2 Give deep humility ; the sense 

Of godly sorrow give ; 
A strong desiring confidence 
To hear thy voice and live. 



3 Patience, to watch, and wait, and weep, 
Though mercy long delay ; 
Courage, our fainting souls to keep, 
And trust thee, though thou slay. 



4 Give these, and then thy will be done 
Thus, strengthen'd with all might. 
We, by thy Spirit and thy Son, 
Shall pray, and pray aright.

1 Now may the God of power and grace, 

Attend his people's humble cry ! 
Jehovah hears when Israel prays, 
And brings deliverance from on high. 

2 Well he remembers all our sighs. 

His love exceeds our best deserts ; 
His love accepts the sacrifice 
Of humble groans, and broken hearts. 

S Now save us, Lord ! from slavish fear. 
Now let our hopes be firm and strong, 
Till thy salvation shall appear. 
And joy and triumph raise the song.

1 Come, dearest Lord, descend and dwell, 
By faith and love in every breast ; 
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel 
The joys that cannot be expressed. 

2 Come, fill our hearts with inward strength. 
Make our enlarged souls possess, 

And learn the height, and breadth, and 

length. 
Of thine immeasurable grace. 

3 Now to the God whose power can do 
More than our thoughts or wishes know, 
Be everlasting honors done, 

By all the church, through Christ his Son.

1 Come, Holy Spirit, calm my mind. 
And fit me to approach my God ; 
Remove each vain, each worldly thought, 
And lead me to thy blest abode. 

2 Hast thou imparted to my soul 
A living spark of holy fire ? 

Oh, kindle now the sacred flame. 
Make me to burn with pure desire. 

3 A brighter faith and hope impart. 
And let me now my Saviour see : 

Oh, soothe and cheer my burdened heart; 
And bid my spirit rest in thee.

1 How sweet to leave the world a while. 

And seek the presence of our Lord ! 
Dear Saviour, on thy people smile. 
And come, according to thy word. 

2 From busy scenes we now retreat. 

That we may here converse with thee 
Ah ! Lord ! behold us at thy feet ;— 
Let this the gate of heaven be. 

3 " Chief of ten thousand !" now appear. 

That we by faith may see thy face : 

Oh! speak, that we thy voice may hear, 

And let thy presence fill this place.

1 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, 

With all thy quickening powers, 
Kindle a flame of sacred love. 
In these cold hearts of ours. 

2 Look — how we grovel here below, 

Fond of these trifling toys ! 
Our souls can neither fly nor go, 
To reach eternal joys.

In vain we strive to rise ; 
Hosannas languish on our tongues, 
And our devotion dies. 

4 Dear Lord ! and shall we ever live. 

At this poor dying rate, 
Our love so faint, so cold to thee, 
And thine to us so great ?

Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love, 
And that shall kindle ours.

The everlasting spring of joy, 
And unction from above. 



Enlighten our dark souls till they 

Thy sacred love embrace ; 
Assist our minds, by nature frail, 

With thy celestial grace. 

Teach us the Father to confess, 
And Son, from death revived, 

And with them both, Thee, Holy Ghjst 
Who art from both derived.

True penitence impart ; 
Then let a kindling glance from thee 

Beam hope on every heart. 



3 When we disclose our wants in praj er. 

May we our wills resign ; 
And not a thought our bosom share, 
Which is not wholly thine. 

4 Let faith each meek petition fill, 

And waft it to the skies ; 
And teach our hearts — 't is goodness stil 
That grants it, or denies.

We will covet nothing less ;

All our joy and all our peace.

1 Lord of hosts, how lovely fair. 
E'en on earth, thy temples are ;

From thy gracious presence flows 
Bliss that softens all our woes ; 
While thy Spirit's holy fire 
Warms our hearts with pure desire.

Here thou maK si iny glories known 
Here we learn thy righteous ways, 
Taste thy love and sing thy praise.

Holy, holy, holy Lord 

God of Hosts ! when heaven and earth 
Out of darkness, at thy word 

Issued into glorious birth, 
All thy works before thee stood, 
And thine eye beheld them good. 
While they sung with sweet accord, 
Holy, holy, holy Lord ! 



2 Holy, holy, holy ! thee, 

One Jehovah evermore, 
Father, Son, and Spirit ! we. 

Dust and ashes, would adore ; 
Lightly by the world esteemed. 
From that world by thee redeemed. 
Sing we here with glad accord. 
Holy, holy, holy Lord ! 



3 Holy, holy, holy ! all 

Heaven's triumphant choir shall si rig, 
While the ransomed nations fall 
At the footstool of their King : 
Then shall saints and seraphim. 
Harps and voices, swell one hymn, 
Blending in sublime accord, 
Holy, holy, holy Lord !

Through the dear Eedeemer's name,

Take away our sin and shame : 

From our worldly cares set free, 

May we rest this day in thee.

Let us feel thy presence near : 
May thy glory meet our eyes, 

While we in thy house appear ; 
Here afford us, Lord, a taste 
Of our everlasting feast.

Conquer sinners, comfort saints, 
Make the fruits of grace abound, 

Bring relief from all complaints ; 
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove, 
Till we join the church above.

We, thy people, now draw near ; 
Teach us to rejoice with trembling ; 
Speak, and let thy servants hear, 

Hear with meekness. 
Hear thy word with godly fear.

' 2 While our days on earth are lengthened, 

May we give them, Lord ! to thee ; 
I Cheered by hope and daily strengthened, 
' May we run, nor weary be, 

Till thy glory 

Without clouds in heaven we see. 

■ 3 There, in worship purer, sweeter. 
Thee thy people shall adore ; 
Tasting of enjoyment greater 

I Far than thought conceived before ; 

I Full enjoyment, 

Full, unmixed, and evermore.

Oh ! may all enjoy the blessing 
Which thy word's designed to give ; 

Let us all, thy love possessing. 
Joyfully the truth receive ; 

And for ever 
To thy praise and glory live.

For thy gospel's joyful sound ; 
May the fruits of thy salvation 
In our hearts and lives abound ; 

May thy presence 
With us, evermore, be found. 

3 So, whene'er the signal's given, 

Us from earth to call away. 

Borne on angels' wings to heaven, 

Glad the summons to obey, 

We shall surely 

Reign with Christ in endless iay.

1 Children of the heavenly King ! 
As ye journey sweetly sing ; 
Sing your Saviour's worthy praise, 
Glorious in his works and ways. 

2 We are traveling home to God, 
In the way the fathers trod ; 
They are happy now, and we 
Soon their happiness shall see. 

3 Shout, ye little flock and blest ! 
You on Jesus' throne shall rest ; 
There, your seat is now prepared, — 
There's your kingdom and reward. 

4 Fear not, brethren ! joyful stand 
On the borders of your land ; 
Jesus Christ, your Father's Son, 
Bids you undismayed go on. 

5 Lord ! obediently we go. 
Gladly leaving all below ; 
Only thou our Leader be. 
And we still will follow thee. 



88 



1 Now begin the heavenly theme. 
Sing aloud in Jesus' name ; 

Ye, who Jesus' kindness prove ' 
Triumph in redeeming love. 

2 Ye, T,ho see the Father's grace 
Beaming in the Saviour's face ! 
As to Canaan on ye move, 
Praise and bless redeeming love. 

44 



3 Mourning souls ! dry up your tears ; 
Banish all your guilty fears : 

See your guilt and curse remove, — 
Canceled by redeeming love. 

4 Welcome all, by sin oppressed, — 
Welcome to his sacred rest ! 
Nothing brought him from above, — 
Nothing but redeeming love. 

5 Hither, then, your music bring ; 
Strike aloud each joyful string ; 
Mortals ! join the hosts above, — 
Join to praise redeeming love. 



89 



1 Hallelujah 1 raise, oh ! raise 
To our God the song of praise • 
All his servants! join to sing 
God, our Saviour, and our King. 

2 O'er all nations God alone, — 
Higher than the heavens his throne 
Who is like to God most high. 
Infinite in majesty ? 

3 Yet to view the heavens he bends, — 
Yea, to earth he condescends : 
Passing by the rich and great. 

For the low and desolate. 

4 He the broken spirit cheers. 
Turns to joy the mourner's tears ; 
Such the wonders of his ways ! 
Praise his name, — for ever p raise.

1 Oh, could I speak the matchless worth, 
Oh, could I sound the glories forth. 

Which in my Saviour shine ! 
I'd soar and touch the heavenly strings, 
And vie with Gabriel, while he sings, 

In notes almost divine. 

2 I'd sing the precious blood he spilt, 
My ransom from the dreadful guilt 

Of sin and wrath divine : 
I'd sing his glorious righteousness, 
In which all-perfect, heavenly dress 

My soul shall ever shine. 



3 I 'd sing the characters he bears, 
And all the forms of love he wears. 

Exalted on his throne ; 
In loftiest songs of sweetest praise, 
I would to everlasting days 

Make all his glories known. 

4 "Well, the delightful day will come. 
When my dear Lord will bring me home 

And I shall see his face : 

Then, with my Saviour, Brother, Friend, 

A blest eternity I '11 spend, 

Triumphant in his grace.

Rejoicing in thy favor, 

Almighty King of kings ! 
I '11 celebrate thy glory, 

With all thy saints above. 
And tell the joyful story 

Of thy redeeming love.

Bedecks the dewy east,

Upon the ocean's breast ;

My voice, in supplication, 
Well-pleased thou shalt hear: 

Oh ! grant me thy salvation 
And to my soul draw near. 

3 By thee, through life supported, 

I pass the dangerous road. 
With heavenly hosts escorted. 

Up to their bright abode , 
There, cast my crown before thee,- 

Now, all my conflicts o'er, — 
And day and night adore thee : — 

What can an angel more ?

1 Saviour, blessed Saviour, 

Listen whilst we sing, 
Hearts and voices raising 

Praises to our King. 
All we have we offer, 

All we hope to be, 
Body, soul, and spirit, 

All we yield to thee. 

2 Nearer, ever nearer, 

Christ, we draw to thee, 
Deep in adoration 

Bending low the knee : 
Thou for our redemption 

Cam'st on earth to die ; 
Thou, that we might follow, 

Hast gone up on high. 

3 Great and ever greater 

Are thy mercies here. 
True and everlasting 

Are the glories there. 
Where no pain, or sorrow. 

Toil, or care, is known, 
Where the angel-legions 

Circle round thy throne. 



1 Brighter still and brighter 

Glows the western sun, 
Shedding all its gladness 

O'er our work that's done. 
Time will soon be over, 

Toil and sorrow past, 
May we, blessed Saviour, 

Find a rest at last. 

2 Onward, ever onward. 

Journeying o'er the road 
Worn by saints before us. 

Journeying on to God ; 
Leaving all behind us, 

May we hasten on, 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won. 

3 Higher then and higher 

Bear the ransomed soul, 
Earthly toils forgotten. 

Saviour, to its goal ; 
Where in joys unth ought of 

Saints with angels sing, 
Never weary raising 

Praises to their King.

1 Come, thou Fount of every blessing, 

Tune my heart to sing thy grace ; 
Streams of mercy never ceasing, 
Call for songs of loudest praise. 

2 Teach me some melodious sonnet, 

Sung by flaming tongues above ; 
Praise the mount ! I 'm fixed upon It, 
Mount of God's unchanging love-! 

3 Here I raise my Ebenezer ; 

Hither by thy help I'm come ; 
And I hope, by thy good pleasure. 
Safely to arrive at home. 



4 Jesus sought me when a stranger, 

AVandering from the fold of God ; 
He, to rescue me from danger. 
Interposed his precious blood. 

5 Oh, to grace how great a debtor 

Daily I 'm constrained to be 1 
Let that grace now, like a fetter. 
Bind my wandering heart to thee. 

6 Prone to wander. Lord, I feel it ; 

Prone to leave the God I love ; 
Here 's my heart ; oh, take and seal it,- 
Seal it for thy courts above !

1 AVhile shepherds watched their flocks by 

All seated on the ground, [night, 

The angel of the Lord came down, 
And glory shone around. 

2 " Fear not," said he, — for mighty dread 

Had seized their troubled mind, — 
" Glad tidings of great joy I bring. 
To you and all mankind. 

3 " To you, in David's town this day, 

Is born of David's line, 
The Saviour, who is Christ, the Lord, 
And this shall be the sign ; — 

4 " The heavenly babe you there shall find 

To human view displayed. 
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands. 
And in a manger laid." 

5 Thus spake the seraph — and forthwith 

Appeared a shining throng 
Of angels praising God, who thus 
Addressed their joyfal song : — 

6 " All glory be to God on high. 

And to the earth be peace ; 
Good-will henceforth from heaven to men 
Begin, and never cease !" 

96 

1 Bright was the guiding star, that led 
With mild benignant ray. 
The Gentiles to the lowly shed, 
Where the Redeemer lay. 
4 



2 But, lo ! a brighter, clearer light 

Now points to his abode ; 
It shines through sin and sorrow's night, 
To guide us V) our God. 

3 Oh ! haste to follow where it leads, 

The gracious call obey ; 
Be rugged wilds, or flowery meads, 
The Christian's destined way. 

4 Oh ! gladly tread the narrow path, 

While light and grace are given ; 

Who meekly follow Christ on earth, 

Shall reign with him in heaven. 



97 



1 THOU, who by a star didst guide 

The wise men on their way, 
Until it came and stood beside 
The place where Jesus lay; 

2 Although by stars thou dost not lead 

Thy servants now below, 
Thy Holy Spirit, when they need. 
Will show them how to go. 

3 As yet we know thee but in part : 

But still we trust thy word. 
That blessed are the pure in heart. 
For they shall see the Lord. 

4 Sa\dour, give us then thy grace, 

To make us pure in heart. 
That we may see thee face to face 
Hereafter, as thou art.

Let earth receive her King ; 
Let every heart prepare him room, 
And heaven and nature sing. 

2 Joy to the world, the Saviour reigns ; 

Let men their songs employ ; 
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains 
Repeat the sounding joy. 

3 No more let sin and sorrow grow, 

Nor thorns infest the ground ; 
He comes to make his blessings flow 
Far as the curse is found. 



4 He rules the world with truth and grace, 
And makes the nations prove 
The glories of his righteousness, 
And wonders of his love 



99 



1 Hark the glad sound ! the Saviour comes, 
The Saviour promised long ; 
Let every heart prepare a throne, 
And every voice a song.

2 On him the Spirit, largely poifred, 

Exerts his sacred fire ; 
Wisdom and might, and zeal and Icve 
His holy breast inspire. 

3 He comes, the pris'ners to release, 

In Satan's bondage held ; 
The gates of brass before him burst, 
The iron fetters yield. 

4 He comes, from thickest films of vice 

To clear the mental ray. 
And on the eye-balls of the blind. 
To pour celestial day. 

5 He comes, the broken heart to bind, 

The bleeding soul to cure ; 
And, with the treasures of his grace, 
T' enrich the humble poor. 

6 Our glad hosannas. Prince of peace t 

Thy welcome shall proclaim, 
And heaven's eternal arches ring 
With thy beloved name.

1 Plunged in a gulf of dark despair, 

We wretched sinners lay, 
Without one cheerful beam of hope, 
Or spark of glimmering day. 

2 With pitying eyes the Prince of grace 

Beheld our helpless grief; 
He saw, and — oh ! amazing love'! — 
He ran to our relief. 

3 Down from the shining seats above. 

With joyful haste he fled, 
Entered the grave in mortal flesh. 
And dwelt among the dead. 

4 Oh ! for this love let rocks and hills 

Their lasting silence break ; 
And all harmonious human tongues 
The Saviour's praises speak. 

5 Angels ! assist our mighty joys ; 

Strike all your harps of gold ; 
But, when you raise your highest notes, 
His love can ne'er be told. 

101 

1 Calm on the listening ear of night. 

Come heaven's melodious strains, 
Where wild Judea stretches far 
Her silver ♦mantled plains. 

2 Celestial choirs, from courts above, 

Shdd sacred glories there. 
And angels with their sparkling lyres, 
Make music on the air. 



3 The answering hills of Palestine 

Send back the glad reply ; 
And greet, from all their holy heights, 
The day-spring from on high. 

4 O'er the blue depths of Galilee 

There comes a holier calm. 
And Sharon waves, in solemn praise. 
Her silent groves of palm. 

5 " Glory to God !" the sounding skies 

Loud with their anthems ring, — 
" Peace to the earth, good-will to men. 
From heaven's eternal King !" 

102 

1 The people that in darkness sat 

A glorious Light have seen ; 
The Light has shined on them who long 
In shades of death have been. 

2 To us a child of hope is born. 

To us a Son is given ; 
Him shall the tribes of earth obey. 
Him all the hosts of heaven. 

3 His name shall be the Prince of peace. 

For evermore adored, 
The Wonderful, the Counselor 
The great and mighty Lord. 

\ His power increasing still shall spread, 
His reign no end shall know ; 
Justice shall guard his throne above, 
And peace abound below.

1 AVnEN, marshaled on the nightly plain, 

The glittering hosts bestud the sky ; 
One star alone, of all the train. 
Can fix the sinner's wandering eye. 

2 Hark ! hark ! — to God the chorus breaks. 

From every host, from every gem ; 
But one alone the Saviour speaks, — 
It is the star of Bethlehem. 

3 Once on the raging seas I rode, 

The storm was loud, the night was dark, — 
The ocean yawned — and rudely blowed 
The wind that tossed my foundering bark. 

4 Deep horror then my vitals froze. 

Death-struck, I ceased the tide to stem ; — 
When suddenly a star arose, — 
It was the star of Bethlehem. 

5 It was my guide, my light, my all ; 

It bade my dark forebodings cease ; 
And through the storm and danger's thrall, 
It led me to the port of peace. 

6 Now safely moored — my perils o'er, 

I '11 sing, first in night's diadem, 

For ever and for evermore. 

The Star -the Star of Bethlehem ! 
52 



104 

1 When Jordan hushed his waters still. 
And silence slept on Zion's hill, [night, 
When Bethlehem's shepherds through the 
Watched o'er their flocks by starry light — 

2 Hark ! from the midnight hills around, 
A voice of more than mortal sound. 
In distant hallelujahs stole. 

Wild murmuring o'er the raptured soul. 

3 On wheels of light, on wings of flame. 
The glorious hosts of Zion came ; 

High heaven with songs of triumph rung, 
While thus they struck their harps and sung 

4 " Zion, lift thy raptured eye ; 
The long-expected hour is nigh ; 
The joys of nature rise again ; 

The Prince of Salem comes to reign. 

5 "See, Mercy, from her golden urn, 
Pours a rich stream to them that mourn 
Behold, she binds, with tender care, 
The bleeding bosom of despair. 

6 "He comes to cheer the trembling heart; 
Bids Satan and his host depart ; 

Again the day-star gilds the gloom. 
Again the bowers of Eden bloom."

3 Thou comest in the darksome night 
To make us children of the light, — 
To make us, in the realms divine, 

Like thine own angels round thee shine. 

4 All this for us thy love hath done, 
By this to thee our love is won ; 
For this we tune our cheerful lays, 

And shout our thanks in ceaseless praiMe. 

107 

1 What star is this, with beams so bright, 
A stranger mid the orbs of light? 

It shines to herald forth the King, 
And Gentiles to his cradle bring. 

2 Behold the long predicted sign, 
The star of Jacob's ancient line : 
The eastern Sages hail its rays, 
And raptured stand in anxious gaze. 

3 Without, the Star informs their sight : 
Within, there shines faith's brighter light, 
Which gently summons them to rise. 
And trust the guidance of the skies. 

4 When God commands, the wise obey ; 
Love sees no danger in the way : 

House, neighbors, friends, their steps recall, 
The voice of God outweighs them all 

5 Oh, while the star of heavenly grace 
Invites us. Lord, to seek thy face, 
Let not our hearts from sloth refuse 
The guidance of that light to use. 

53 



105 

1 Christ, our true and only light ! 
Illumine those who sit in night ; 
Let those afar now hear thy voice. 
And in thy fold with us rejoice. 

2 And all who else have strayed from thee, 
Oh, gently seek ! thy healing be 

To every wounded conscience given, 
And let them also share thy heaven. 

I 3 Oh make the deaf to hear thy word, 

I And teach the dumb to speak, dear Lord, 

j Who dare not yet the faith avow, 

I Though secretly they hold it now. 

j 4 Shine on the darkened and the cold, 
! Recall the wanderers from thy fold ; 
Unite those now who walk apart, 
Confirm the weak and doubting heart. 

5 So they, with us, may evermore 
Such grace with wondering thanks adore. 
And endless praise to thee be given, 
By all thy Church in earth and heaven. 

106 

1 All praise to thee, eternal Lord ! 
Clothed in a garb of flesh and blood. 
Choosing a manger for thy throne. 
While worlds on worlds are thine alone. 

2 A little child, thou art our guest, 
That weary ones in thee may rest; 
Forlorn and lowly is thy birth, 

That we may rise to heaven from earth.

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid : 
Star of the East, the horizon adorning, 
Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid ! 



i Cold on his cradle the dew-drops are shining ; 
Low lies his head with the beasts of the stall ; 
Angels adore him, in slumber reclining, 
Maker and Monarch, and Saviour of all ! 

3 Say, shall we yield him in costly devotion, 

Odors of Edom, and offerings divine,

Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the 

ocean, 
Myrrh from the forest, orgold from the mine? 

4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation ; 
Vainly with gifts would his favor secure : 
Richer by far is the heart's adoration ; 
Dearer to God are the prayers of .he poor. 

5 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning, 
Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid ; 
Star of the East, the horizon adorning. 
Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

1 Hakk ! hark !— the notes of joy 

Roll o'er the heavenly plains, 
And seraphs find employ 

For their sublimest strains ; 
Some new delight in heaven is known, 
Loud sound the harps around the throne. 

2 Hark ! hark ! — the sounds draw nigh. 

The joyful hosts descend ; 
Jesus forsakes the sky, 

To earth his footsteps bend ; 
He comes to bless our fallen race ; 
He comes with messages of grace. 

3 Bear, bear the tidings round ; 

Let every mortal know 
What love in God is found. 

What pity he can show ; 
Ye winds that blow ! ye waves that roll ! 
Bear the glad news from pole to pole. 

4 Strike, strike the harps again, 

To great Immanuel's name ; 



Arise, ye sons of men ! 

And all his grace proclaim ; 
Angels and men ! wake every string, 
'T is God the Saviour's praise we sing 

110 

1 Join all the glorious names 

Of wisdom, love, and power. 
That ever mortals knew, 

That angels ever bore, — 
All are too mean to speak his worth 
Too mean to set my Saviour forth. 

2 But oh, what gentle terms, 

What condescending ways 
Doth our Redeemer use. 

To teach his heavenly grace ! 
My eyes with joy and wonder see 
What forms cf love he bears for me. 

3 Great Prophet of my God, 

My tongue would bless thy name • 
By thee the joyful news 

Of our salvation came ; — 
The joyful news of sins forgiv'n, 
Of hell subdued, and peace with heav'n.

1 As WITH gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold ; 
As with joy they hail'd its light, 
Leading onward, beaming bright ; 
So, most gracious Lord, may we 
Evermore be led to thee. 

2 As with joyous steps they sped 
To that lowly manger-bed. 
There to bend the knee before 
Him whom heaven and earth adore ; 
So may we with willing feet 

Ever seek the mercy -seat. 

3 As they offered gifts most rare 
At that manger rude and bare ; 

MOZART, [H.114.] 



So may we with holy joy. 
Pure and free from sin's alloy, 
All our costliest treasures bring, 
Christ ! to thee our heavenly King. 

4 Holy Jesus ! every day 
Keep us in the narrow way ; 
And, when earthly things are past, 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
Where no clouds thy glory hide. 

5 In the heavenly country bright, 
Need they no created light ; 
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown, 
Thou its Sun which goes not down, 
There for ever may we sing 
Hallelujahs to our King.

1 Raise your triumphant songs 

To an immortal tune ; 
Let the wide earth resound the deeds 
Celestial grace has done. 

2 Sing — how eternal love 

Its chief beloved chose, 
And bade him raise our ruined race 
From their abyss of woes. 

3 His hand no thunder bears, 

Nor terror clothes his brow. 
No bolts to drive our guilty souls 
To fiercer flames below. 

4 'T was mercy filled the throne, 

And wrath stood silent by, 
When Christ was sent, with pardons, down 
To rebels doomed to die. 

5 Now, sinners ! dry your tears. 

Let hopeless sorrow cease ; 

Bow to the sceptre of his love, 

And take the offered peace. 

6 Lord, we obey thy call ; 

We lay an humble claim 
To the salvation thou hast brought, 
And love and praise thy name. 

•17 

1 God from on high hath heard. 
Let sighs and sorrows cease ; 
Lo I from the opening heaven descends 
To man the promised Peace. 
60 



2 Hark ! through the silent night 

Angelic voices swell ; 
Their joyful songs proclaim that " God 
Is born on earth to dwell." 

3 See how the shepherd-band 

Speed on with eager feet ; 
Come to the hallowed cave with them 
The holy babe to greet. 

4 But oh ! what sight appears 

Within that lowly door ; 
A manger, stall, and swaddling clothes, 
A Child and Mother poor. 

5 Art thou the Christ? the Son? 

The Father's Image bright? 
And see we him whose arm upholds 
Earth and the starry height ? 

6 Yea, faith can pierce the cloud 

Which veils thy glory now ; 
We hail thee God, before whose throne 
The angels prostrate bow. 

7 A silent Teacher, Lord, 

Thou bidst us not refuse 
To bear what flesh would have ns shaiij 
To shun what flesh would choosf . 

8 Our swelling pride to cure 

With that pure love of thine. 
Oh, be thou born within our hearts, 
Most holy Child divine.

1 Within the Father's house 

The Son hath found his home ; 
And to his temple suddenly 
The Lord of Life hath come. 

2 The doctors of the law 

Gaze on the wondrous Child, 
And marvel at his gracious words 
Of wisdom undefiled. 

3 Yet not to them is given 

The mighty truth to know, 
To lift the fleshy veil which hides 
Incarnate God below. 

4 The secret of the Lord 

Escapes each human eye. 
And faithful pondering hearts await 
The full Epiphany. 

5 Lord, visit thou our souls, 

And teach us by thy grace 

Each dim revealing of thyself 

With loving awe to trace ; 

6 Till from our darkened sight 

The cloud shall pass away. 
And on the cleansed soul shall burst 
The everlasting day. 



119 



1 Fierce raged the storm of wind, 

The surging waves ran high, 
Filled thy disciples' hearts with fear. 
Though thou, their Lord, wast nigh. 

2 But at the stern rebuke 

Of thine Almighty word, 



The wind was hushed, the billows ceased, 
And owned thee God and Lord. 

3 So now, when depths of sin 
Our souls with terror fill, 
Arise, and be our helper, Lord, 
And speak thv '' Peace, be still." 

120 

1 All praise to thee, Lord, 

Who by thy mighty power 
Didst manifest thy glory forth 
In Cana's marriage hour. 

2 Thou speakest: it is done : 

Obedient to thy word, 
The water reddening into wine 
Proclaims the present Lord. 

3 Blest were the eyes which saw 

That wondrous mystery. 
The great beginning of thy works, 
That kindled faith in thee. 

4 And blessed they who know 

Thine unseen Presence true, 
When in the kingdom of thy grace 
Thou makest all things new. 

5 For by thy loving hand 

Thy people still are fed ; 
Thou art the Cup of blessing, Lord, 
And thou the Heavenly Bread. 

6 Oh, may that grace be ours, 

In thee for aye to live. 
And drink of those refreshing strepms 
Which thou alone canst give.

1 Lord, in thy temple we appear, 

As happy Simeon came, 
And hope to meet our Saviour here ; 
Oh, make our joys the same I 

2 With what divine and vast delight 

The good old man was filled, 
When fondly in his withered arms 
He clasped the Holy Child ! 

3 " Now I can leave this world," he cried, 

" Behold thy servant dies ; 
I've seen thy great salvation. Lord, 
And close my peaceful eyes." 

1 Jesus, the vision of thy face 
Hath overpowering charms ; 
Scarce shall I feel death's cold embrace. 
If Christ be in my arms. 

5 When flesh shall faii, and heart-strings 
Sweet will the minutes roll ; [break, 

A mortal paleness on my cheek. 
But glory in my soul. 

122 

1 In stature grows the Heavenly Child, 

With death before his eyes ; 
A Lamb unblemished, meek and mild. 
Prepared for sacrifice. 

2 Those mighty hands that rule the sky 

No earthly toil refuse ; 
The Maker of the stars on high 
An humble trade pursues. 
62 



3 He whom the hosts of angels praise. 

At whose command they fly, 
His earthly parents now obeys. 
And lays his glory by. 

4 For this thy lowliness revealed, 

We, Jesus, thee adore, 
And praise to God the Father yield 
And Spirit evermore. 

123 

1 What grace, Lord, and beauty shone 

Around thy steps below ; 
What patient love was seen in all 
Thy life and death of woe. 

2 For, ever on thy burdened heart, 

A weight of sorrow hung ; 
Yet no ungentle, murmuring word 
Escaped thy silent tongue. 

3 Thy foes might hate, despise, revile. 

Thy friends unfaithful prove ; 
Unwearied in forgiveness still, 
Thy heart could only love. 

4 Oh, give us hearts to love like thee I 

Like thee, O Lord, to grieve 

Far more for others' sin than all 

The wrongs that we receive. 

5 One with thyself, may every eye, 

In us, thy brethren, see 
The gentleness and grace that spring 
From union, Lord, with thee.

1 Majestic sweetness sits enthroned 

Upon the Saviour's brow ; 
His head with radiant glories crowned, 
His lips with grace o'erflow. 

2 No mortal can with him compare 

Among the sons of men ; 
Fairer is he than all the fair, 
That fill the heavenly train. 

3 He saw me plunged in deep distress, 

And flew to my relief; 
For me he bore the shameful cross, 
And carried all my grief.

He brings my weary feet. 
Shows me the glories of my God, 
And makes my joys complete. 

6 Since from his bounty I receive 

Such proofs of love divine, 
Had I a thousand hearts to give, 
Lord, they should all be thine.

1 How beauteous were the marks divine, 
That in thy meekness used to shine, 
That lit thy lonely pathway, trod 

In wondrous love, O Son of God ! 

2 Oh, who like thee so calm, so bright, 
So pure, so made to live in light ? 
Oh, who like thee did ever go 

So patient through a world of woe? 

3 Oh, who like thee, so humbly bore 
The scorn, the scoffs of men, before? 
So meek, forgiving, godlike, high, 

So glorious in humility ? 

4 And death, which sets the prisoner free. 
Was pang, and scoff, and scorn to thee ; 
Yet love through all thy torture glowed. 
And mercy with thy life-blood flowed. 

5 Oh, in thy light be mine to go, 
Illuming all my way of woe ; 
And give me ever on the road 

To trace thy footsteps. Son of God ! 

126 

1 When like a stranger on our sphere, 

The lowly Jesus sojourned here. 

Where'er he went afl[liction fled, 

And sickness reared her drooping head. 
64 



2 The eye that rolled in irksome night, 
Beheld his face, — for he was light ; 
The opening ear, the loosened tongue, 
His precepts heard, his praises sung. 

3 With bounding steps, the halt and lame 
To hail their great Deliverer came ; 
O'er the cold grave he bowed his head, 
He spake the word, and raised the dead. 

4 Demoniac madness, dark and wild. 
In his inspiring presence smiled ; 
The storm of horror ceased to roll. 
And reason lightened through the soul. 

127 

1 How sweetly flowed the gospel's sound 

From lips of gentleness and grace. 
When list'ning thousands gathered round, 
And joy and reverence filled the place ! 

2 From heaven he came, of heaven he spoke, 

To heaven he led his foll'wers' way ; 
Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke. 
Unveiling an immortal day. 

3 "Come, wanderers! to my Father's home, 

Come, all ye weary ones! and rest:" 
Yes, sacred Teacher ; we will come, 
Obey thee, love thee, and be blest.

1 Lord of health and life, what tongue can 
tell 
How at thy word were loosed the bands of 

hell; 
How thy pure touch removed the leprous 
( stain, 

And the polluted flesh grew clean again ? 
I 

; 2 Oh, wash our hearts, restore the contrite soul, 
Stretch forth thy healing hand, and make us 

I whole , 

' Oh, bend our stubborn knees to kneel to thee ; 
Speak but the word, and we once more are 
free.

move ; 
5 



Nigh to our souls thy great salvation bring, 
Then sickness hath no pang, and death no 
sting. 



We hail this pledge in all thy deeds of grace ; 
As once disease and sorrow fled thy face, 
So, when that face again unveiled we see, 
Sickness and tears and death no more shall 
ba 



Then grant us strength to pray '' Thy king- 
dom come," 

When we shall know thee in thy Father's 
home, 

And at thy great Epiphany adore 

The Co-eternal Godhead evermore.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, 



OLIVE'S BROW. 



LM. 




129 

1 'Tis midnight ; and on Olive's brow 

The star is dimmed that lately shone : 
'Tis midnight ; in the garden now, 
The suffering Saviour prays alone. 

2 'Tis midnight ; and from all removed, 

The Saviour wrestles lone with fears ; 
Ev'n that disciple whom he loved 
Heeds not his Master's grief and t^ars. 

3 'Tis midnight ; and for others' guilt 

The Man of Sorrows weeps in blood ; 
Yet he that hath in anguish knelt 
Is not forsaken by his God. 

4 'Tis midnight ; and from ether-plains 

Is borne the song that angels know ; 
Unheard by mortals are the strains 
That sweetly soothe the Saviour's woe. 

130 

1 He dies f — the friend of sinners dies ! 

Lo ! Salem's daughters weep around ! 
A solemn darkness veils the skies — 
A sudden trembling shakes the ground. 

2 Here's love and grief beyond degree, 

The Lord of glory dies for men I 
But, — lo ! what sudden joys we see ! 
Jesus, the dead, revives again. 

3 The rising God forsakes the tomb ; 

Up to his Father's court he flies ! 
Cherubic legions guard him home, 
A.nd shout him — welcome to the skies. 
fi6 



4 Break off your tears, ye saints ! and tell 

How high our great Deliverer reigns ; 
Sing, — how he spoiled the hosts of hell, 
And led the monster, death, in chains. 

5 Say, — " Live for ever, glorious King ! 

Born to redeem, and strong to save !" 
Then ask, " death ! where is thy sting? 
And where thy vict'ry, boasting grave ?" 

131 

1 Here at thy cross, incarnate God, 

I lay my soul beneath thy love ; 
Beneath the droppings of thy blood, 
Jesus, nor shall it e'er remove. 

2 Not all that tyrants think or say, 

With rage and lightning in their eyes. 
Nor hell shall fright my heart away. 
Should hell with all its legions rise. 

3 Should worlds conspire to drive me thence. 

Moveless and firm this heart should lie; 
Resolved, for that's my last defence, 
If I must perish, there to die. 

4 But speak, my Lord, and calm my fear ; 

Am I not safe beneath thy shade ? 
Thy vengeance will not strike me here. 
Nor Satan dare mv soul invade. 

5 Yes, I'm secure beneath thy blood, 

And all my foes shall lose their aim : 
Hosanna to my Saviour God, 
And my best honors to his name.

1 Oh, come and mourn with me a while ; 
j Oh, come ye to the Saviour's side ; 
! Oh, come, together let us mourn ; 
I Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 

: 2 Have we no tears to shed for him, 

While soldiers scofi" and Jews deride ? 
, Ah, look how patiently he hangs ! 
1 Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 

\ 3 How fast his hands and feet are nailed ; 
' His throat with parching thirst is dried ; 

His failing eyes are dimmed with blood : 
j Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 

4 Seven times he spake, seven words of love ; 

And all three hours his silence cried 
For mercy on the souls of men : 
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 

5 Come let us stand beneath the cross ; 

So may the blood from out his side 
Fall gently on us drop by drop : 
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified. 

6 A broken heart, a fount of tears 

Ask, and they will not be denied • 
Lord Jesus, may we love and weep, 
Since thou for us art crucified. 



1 Jesus, thy Blood and Kighteousness 
My beauty are, my glorious dress ; 
'Midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed, 
With joy shall I lift up my head. 

2 Bold shall I stand in thy great day. 
For who aught to my charge shall lay ? 
Fully absolved through these I am. 
From sin and fear, from guilt and shame. 

3 When from the dust of death I rise 
To claim my mansion in the skies — 
E'en then, this shall be all my plea : 
Jesus hath lived, hath died for me. 

4 Thus Abraham, the friend of God, 

Thus all heaven's armies bought with blood, 
Saviour of Sinners, thee proclaim ; 
Sinners, of whom the chief I am. 

5 This spotless robe the same appears, 
When ruined nature sinks in years ; 
No age can change its glorious hue. 
The robe of Christ is ever new. 

6 Oh, let the dead now hear thy voice I 
Bid, Lord, thy mourning ones rejoice ! 
Their beauty this, their glorious dress, 
Jesus, the Lord our Eighteousness.

1 Not all the blood of beasts, 

On Jewish altars slain, 
Could give the guilty conscience peace, 
Or wash away the stain. 

2 But Christ, the heavenly Lamb, 

Takes all our sins away ; 
A sacrifice of nobler name, 
And richer blood than they. 

3 My faith would lay her hand 

On that dear head of thine, 
While like a penitent, I stand, 
And there confess my sin. 

4 My soul looks back to see 

The burdens thou didst bear. 
When hanging on th' accursed tree. 
And hopes her guilt was there. 

5 Believing, we rejoice 

To see the curse remove ; 

ST. BRIDE. 



We bless the Lamb, with cheerful voice. 
And sing his bleeding love. 

135 

1 Like sheep we went astray, 

And broke the fold of God : 
Each wandering in a different way. 
But all the downward road. 

2 How dreadful was the hour, 

When God our wanderings laid, 
And did at once his vengeance pour 
Upon the Shepherd's head ! 

3 How glorious was the grace 

When Christ sustained the stroke ! 
His life and blood the Shepherd pays 
A ransom for the flock. 

4 But God shall raise his head 

O'er all the sons of men. 
And make him see a numerous seed. 
To recompense his pain.

1 There is a fountain filled with blood, 

Drawn from Immanuel's veins ; 
And sinners plunged beneath that flood, 
Lose all their guilty stains. 

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see 

That fountain in his day ; 
A.nd there have I, as vile as he. 
Washed all my sins away. 

3 Dear dying Lamb ! thy precious blood 

Shall never lose its power, 
Till all the ransomed church of God 
Be saved, to sin no more. 

4 E'er since, by faith, I saw the stream 

Thy flowing wounds supply, 
Redeeming love has been my theme. 
And shall be till I die. 

5 Then in a nobler, sweeter song, 

I'll sing thy power to save. 
When this poor lisping, stammering tongue 
Lies silent in the grave. 



137 

1 Alas ! and did my Saviour bleed. 

And did my Sov'reign die ? 
Would he devote that sacred head 
For such a worm as I ? 

2 Was it for crimes that I had done, 

He groaned upon the tree? 
Amazing pity ! grace unknown ! 
And love beyond degree ! 

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide, 

And shut his glories in, 
When God, the mighty Maker, died 
For man, the creature's sin. 

4 Thus might I hide my blushing face. 

While his dear cross appears, 
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness. 
And melt my eyes to tears. 

5 But drops of grief can ne'er repay 

The debt of love I owe ; 
Here, Lord, I give myself away, 
"Tis all that I can do.

1 Go to dark Gethsemane, 

Ye that feel the tempter's power ! 
Your Redeemer's conflict see, 

Watch with him one bitter hour ; 
Turn not from his griefs away, 
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray. 

2 Follow to the judgment-hall, 

View the Lord of Life arraigned ; 
Oh 1 the wormwood and the gall ; 

Oh ! the pangs his soul sustained : 
Shun no sufiering, shame, or loss; 
Learn of him to bear the cross. 

3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb ; 

There — adoring at his feet, 
Mark that miracle of Time- 
God's own sacrifice complete : 
" It is finished " — hear him cry ; 
Learn of Jesus Christ to die. 

4 Early hasten to the tomb, 

Where they laid his breathless clay ; 
All is solitude and ^loom, 

Who hath taken him away ? 
Christ is risen — he meets our eyes ; 
Saviour 1 teach us so to rise. 

70 



139 

1 



Resting from his work to-day, 
In the tomb the Saviour lay ; 
Still he slept ; from head to feet 
Shrouded in the winding sheet,- 
Lying in the rock alone. 
Hidden by the sealed stone. 



2 Late at even there was seen 
Watching long the Magdalene ; 
Early, ere the break of day, 
Sorrowful she took her way 
To the holy garden glade, 
Where her buried Lord was laid. 

3 So with thee till life shall end 
I would solemn vigil spend ; 
Let me hew thee, Lord, a shrine 
In this rocky heart of mine. 
Where in pure embalmed cell 
None but thee may ever dwell. 

4 Myrrh and spices will I bring, 
True afiection's ofiering ; 

Close the door from sight and sound 
Of the busy world around ; 
And in patient watch remai t 
Till my Lord appear again.

1 In the cross of Christ I glory, 

Tow'ring o'er the wrecks of time 
All the light of sacred story 
Gathers round its head sublime. 

2 When the woes of life o'ertake me, 

Hopes deceive, and fears annoy. 
Never shall the cross forsake me : 
Lol it glows with peace and joy. 

3 When the sun of bliss is beaming 

Light and love upon my way, 



From the cross the radiance streaming 
Adds more lustre to the day. 

Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure. 
By the cross are sanctified ; 

Peace is there, that knows no measure, 
Joys that through all time abide. 

In the cross of Christ I glory, 
Tow'ring o'er the wrecks of time : 

All the light of sacred story 
Gathers round its head sublime.

1 When, on Sinai's top, I see 
God descend in majesty, 
To proclaim his holy law, 
All my spirit sinks with awe. 

2 When, in ecstacy sublime, 
Tabor's glorious steep I climb, 
At the too-transporting light. 
Darkness rushes o'er my sight. 

3 When on Calvary I rest, 
God, in flesh made manifest, 
Shines in my Redeemer's face, 
Full of beauty, truth, and grace. 

4 Here I would for ever stay. 
Weep and gaze my soul away ; 
Thou art heaven on earth to me. 
Lovely, mournful Calvary 1 



143 



1 " It is finished !" shall we raise 
Songs of sorrow, or of praise ? 
Mourn to see the Saviour die, 
Or proclaim his victory ? 

2 If of Calvary we tell. 

How can songs of triumph swell ? 
If of man redeemed from woe, 
How shall notes of mourning flow ? 

3 Ours the guilt which pierced his side, 
Ours the sin for which he died ; 

But the blood which flowed that day 
Washed our sin and guilt away. 

4 Lamb of God ! thy death hath given 
Pardon, peace, and hope of heaven : 
" It is finished !" let us raise 

Songs of thankfulness and pra se. 



144 [Tune — Supplication.] 

1 Surely Christ thy griefs has borne ; | 3 Cast thy guilty soul on him. 



7s. 



Weeping soul, no longer mourn : 
View him bleeding on the tree. 
Pouring out his life for thee. 

Weary sinner, keep thine eyes 
On the atoning sacrifice ; 
There the incarnate Deity 
Numbered with transgressors see. 
72 



Find him mighty to redeem ; 
At his feet thy burden lay. 
Look thy doubts and cares away. 

4 Lord, thine arm must be revealed, 
Ere I can by faith be healed ; 
Since I scarce can look to thee, 
Cast a gracious eye on me.

1 Beyond where Cedron's waters flow, 
Behold the suffering Saviour go 

To sad Gethsemane : 
His countenance is all divine, 
Yet grief appears in every line. 

2 He bows beneath the sins of men ; 
He cries to God, and cries again, 

In sad Gethsemane ; 
He lifvs his mournful eyes above : 
" My Father, can this cup remove ?'' 

3 With gentle resignation still 
He yielded to his Father's will, 

In sad Gethsemane : 



"Behold me here, thine only Son; 
And, Father, let thy will be done." 

4 The Father heard ; and angels, there, 
Sustained the Son of God in prayer, 

In sad Gethsemane : 
He drank the dreadful cup of pain. 
Then rose to life and joy again. 

5 When storms of sorrow round us sweep, 
And scenes of anguish make us weep. 

To sad Gethsemane 
We'll look, and see the Saviour there 
And humbly bow like him in prayer.

1 Soft be the gently breathing notes, 

That sing tlie Saviour's dying love ; 
Soft as the evening zephyr floats ; 
Soft as the tuneful lyres above : 

2 Soft as the morning dews descend, 

While the sweet lark exulting soars ; 
So soft, to your Almighty Friend, 
Be every sigh your bosom pours. 

3 Pure as the sun's enlivening ray, 

That scatters life and joy abroad ; 
Pure as the lucid car of day, 
That wide proclaims its Maker, God ; 

4 Pure as the breath of vernal skies ; 

So pure let our contrition be ; 
So purely let our love arise 
To him who bled upon the tree. 

147 

1 When I survey the wondrous cross 

On which the Prince of glory died, 
My richest gain I count but loss. 
And pour contempt on all my pride. 

2 Forbid it, Lord ! that I should boast. 

Save in the death of Christ, my God ; 
All the vain things that charm me most, 
I sacrifice them to his blood. 

3 See,— from his head, his hands, his feet. 

Sorrow and love flow mingled down : 
74 



Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
Or thorns compose so rich a crown? 

4 Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
That were a present far too small ; 
Love, so amazing, so divine. 
Demands my soul, my b'fe, my all. 

148 

1 We sing the praise of him who died, — 

Of him who died upon the cross ; 
The sinner's hope let men deride, 
For this we count the world but loss. 

2 Inscribed upon the cross we see. 

In shining letters, — ** God is Love : ' 
He bears our sins upon the tree. 
He brings us mercy from above. 

3 The cross !— it takes our guilt away, 

It holds the fainting spirit up ; 
It cheers with hope the gloomy day, 
And sweetens every bitter cup. 

4 It makes the coward spirit brave. 

And nerves the feeble arm for fight ; 
It takes its terror from the grave. 
And gilds the bed of death with light 

5 The balm of life, the cure of woe, 

The measure and the pledge of love ; 
The sinner's refuge here below, 
The angels' theme in heaven above.

1 SACRED Head, now wounded, 

With grief and shame weighed down, 
Now scornfully surrounded 

With thorns, thine only crown ; 
sacred Head, what glory, 

What bliss, till now was thine ! 
Yet though despised and gory, 

I joy to call thee mine. 

2 What thou, my Lord, hast suffered 

Was all for sinners' gain ; 
Mine, mine was the transgression, 

But thine the deadly pain ; 
Lo, here I fall, my Saviour ! 

'Tis I deserve thy place ; 
Look on me with thy favor. 

Vouchsafe to me thy grace. 

3 The joy can ne'er be spoken, 

Above all joys beside, 
When in thy body broken 

I thus with safety hide : 
My Lord of Life, desiring 

Thy glory now to see. 
Beside thy cross expiring, 

I'd breathe my soul to thee. 



4 What language shall I borrow 

To thank thee, dearest Friend, 
For this thy dying sorrow. 

Thy pity without end ? 
Oh, make me thine for ever ; 

And should I fainting be. 
Lord, let me never, never 

Outlive my love to thee ! 

5 And when I am departing. 

Oh, part thou not from me ! 
When mortal pangs are darting, 

Come, Lord, and set me free ! 
And when my heart must languisii 

Amidst the final throe. 
Release me from mine anguish, 

By thine own pain and woe ! 

6 Be near me when I'm dying : 

Oh, show thy cross to me ! 
And for my succor flying. 

Come, Lord, and set me free I 
These eyes, new faith receiving, 

From Jesus shall not move ; 

For he who dies believing. 

Dies safely, through thy love.

1 Our Lord is risen from the dead ; 

Our Jesus is gone up on high ; 
The powers of hell are captive led, 
Dragged to the portals of the sky. 

2 There his triumphal chariot waits, 

And angels chant the solemn lay : 
" Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates ! 
Ye everlasting doors ! give way. 

3 " Loose all your bars of massy light, 

And wide unfold th' ethereal scene ; 
He claims these mansions as his right ; 
Receive the* King of glory in." 

4 " Who is the King of glory ?— who?" 

" The Lord, that all our foes o'ercame. 

The world, sin, death, and hell o'erthrew 

And Jesus is the Conqueror's name." 



5 Lo ! his triumphal chariot waits. 

And angels chant the solemn lay : 
" Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates ! 
Ye everlasting doors ! give way." 

6 " Who is the King of glory? — who?" 

" The Lord, of glorious power possessed : 
The King of saints and angels too : 
God over ail, for ever blessed." 

152 

1 Saviour, who for man hast trod 
The winepress of the wrath of God, 



Ascend, and claim again on high. 
Thy glory left for us to die. 

2 A radiant cloud is now thy seat. 

And earth lies stretched beneath thy feet • 
Ten thousand thousands round thee sing, 
And share the triumph of their King. 

3 The angel-host enraptured waits : 

*' Lift up your heads, eternal gates !" 
God-and-Man ! the Father's Throne 
Is now for evermore thine own. 

4 Our great High-Priest and Shepherd, thou 
Within the veil art entered now. 

To offer there thy precious Blood 
Once poured on earth a cleansing flood. 

5 And thence the Church, thy chosen Bride, 
With countless gifts of grace supplied. 
Through all her members draws from thee 
Her hidden life of sanctity. 

6 O Christ, our Lord, of thy dear care 
Thy lowly members heavenward bear ; 
Be ours with thee to suffer pain, 
With thee for evermore to reign. 

7 All praise from every heart and tongue 
To thee, ascended Lord, be sung ; 

All praise to God the Father be 
And Holy Ghost eternally.

Christ, a while to mortals given. 
Enters now the gates of heaven, 

2 There the glorious triumph waits : 
Lift your heads, eternal g^ites ! 
Christ hath vanquished death and siu ; 
Take the King of glory in. 

3 Still for us he intercedes. 

His prevailing death he pleads ; 
Near himself prepares our place, 
Great Forerunner of our race. 

4 Master, will we ever say, 
Taken from our head to-day, 
See thy faithful servants, see. 
Ever gazing up to thee 1 

5 Grant, though parted from our sight 
High above yon azure height, 
Grant, our hearts may thither rise. 
Following thee beyond the skies 1

1 Christ the Lord is risen to-day, 
Sons of men and angels say ; 
Raise your joys and triumphs high, 
Sing, ye heavens, and, earth, reply. 

2 Love's redeeming work is done. 
Fought the fight, the battle won : 
Lo ! our Sun's eclipse is o'er ; 

Lo ! he sets in blood no more. 



3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal ; 
Christ hath burst the gates of hell ! 
Death in vain forbids his rise ; 
Christ hath opened Paradise ! 

4 Lives again our glorious King : 
Where, Death, is now thy sting ? 
Once he died, our souls to save : 
Where thy victory, O grave ? 

5 Soar we now where Christ has led, 
Following our exalted head ; 
Made like him, like him we rise ; 
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. 



156 



] Christ the Lord is risen again, 
Christ hath broken every chain , 
Hark ! angelic voices cry. 
Singing evermore on high. 

Hallelujah ! Praise the Lord ! 



2 He who gave for us his life. 
Who for us endured the strife, 
Is our paschal Lamb to-day ! 
We, too, sing for joy, and say. 

Hallelujah ! Praise the Lord ! 

3 He who bore all pain and loss, 
Comfortless, upon the cross. 
Lives in glory now on high. 
Pleads for us and hears our cry ; 

Hallelujah I Praise the Lord ! 

4 Now he bids us tell abroad 
How the lost may be restored, 
How the penitent forgiven. 
How we, too, may enter heaven ! 

Hallelujah ! Praise the Lord ! 



157 



1 Morning breaks upon the tomb, 
Jesus scatters all its gloom ; 

Day of triumph, through the skies 
See the glorious Saviour rise ! 

2 Ye, who are of death afraid. 
Triumph in the scattered shade • 
Drive your anxious cares away ; 
See the place where Jesus lay ! 

3 Christian ! dry your flowing tears, 
Chase your unbelieving fears ; 
Look on his deserted grave ; 
Doubt no more his power to save ! 



THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

1 Come, every pious heart, 

That loves the Saviour's name, 
Your noblest powers exert 

To celebrate his fame ; 
Tell all above, and all below, 
The debt of love to him you owe. 

2 He left his starry crown. 

And laid his robes aside, 
On wings of love came down. 

And wept, and bled, and died ; 
What he endured, oh, who can tell, 
To save our souls from death and hell ? 

3 From the dark grave he rose, 

The mansion of the dead, 
And thence his mighty foes 

In glorious triumph led ; 
Up through the sky the Conqueror rode, 
And reigns on high, the Saviour God. 

4 Jesus, we ne'er can pay 

The debt we owe thy love ; 
Yet tell us how we may 

Our gratitude approve ; 
Our hearts, our all to thee we give ; 
The gift, though small, thou wilt receive. 

159 

1 Yes, the Redeemer rose ; 
The Saviour left the dead ; 
80 



And o'er our hellish foes 

High raised his conquering head ; 
In wild dismay, I Fall to the ground, 

The guards around | And sink away. 

2 Lo ! the angelic bands 

In full assembly meet. 
To wait his high commands. 
And worship at his feet : 
Joyful they come, I From realms of day. 
And wing their way, | To Jesus' tomb. 

3 Then back to heaven they fly 

And the glad tidings bear. 
Hark ! as they soar on high, 

What music fills the air ! 
Their anthems say, I Hath left the dead ; 
" Jesus, who bled, | He rose to-day." 

4 Ye mortals ! catch the sound, 

Redeemed by him from hell ; 
And send the echo round 

The globe, on which you dwell ! 
Transported, crj--, I Hath left the dead, 

" Jesus, who bled, | No more to die." 

5 All hail ! triumphant Lord ! 

Who sav'st us with thy blood ; 
Wide be thy name adored. 
Thou rising, reigning God I 
With thee we rise, | And empires gain, 
With thee we reign, | Beyond the skies.

1 How calm and beautiful the morn, 
That gilds the sacred tomb, 
Where Christ the crucified was borne, 

And veiled in midnight gloom ! 
Oh, weep no more the Saviour slain, 
The Lord is risen, he lives again. 



2 Ye mourning saints, dry everj^ tear 

For your departed Lord, 
" Behold the place, he is not here !" 

The tomb is all unbarred : 
The gates of death were closed in vain, 
The Lord is risen, he lives again. 



3 Now cheerful to the house of prayer, 
Your early footsteps bend ; 



The Saviour will himself be there, 

Your Advocate and friend : 
Once by the law your hopes were slain, 
But now in Christ ye live again. 

How tranquil now the rising day ! 

'T is Jesus still appears, 
A risen Lord, to chase away 

Your unbelieving fears : 
Oh, weep no more your comforts slain, 
The Lord is risen, he lives again. 

And when the shades of evening fall, 
TVhen life's last hour draws nigh. 

If Jesus shines upon the soul. 
How blissful then to die ! 

Since he hath risen that once was slain. 

Ye die in Christ to live again.

Then, with golden harps, we'll sing,

1 I KNOW that my Redeemer lives, 

And ever prays for me : 
A token of his love he gives, 
A pledge of liberty. 

2 I find him lifting up my head ; 

He brings salvation near : 
His presence makes me free indeed. 
And he will soon appear. 

3 He wills that I should holy be : 

"What can withstand his will ? 
The counsel of his grace in me 
He surely shall fulfill. 

4 Jesus, I hang upon thy word : 

I steadfastly believe 
Thou wilt return, and claim me, Lord, 
And to thyself receive. 

163 

1 With joy we meditate the grace 

Of our High-Priest above ; 
His heart is made of tenderness, 
His bowels melt with love. 

2 Touched with a sympathy within, 

He knows our feeble frame ; 
He knows what sore temptations mean, 
For he has felt the same. 

3 But spotless, innocent, and pure. 

The great Redeemer stood ; 
While Satan's fiery darts he bore, 
And did resist to blood. 



r^ 



4 He, in the days of feeble flesh. 

Poured out his cries and tears ; 
And, in his measure, feels afresh 
What every member bears. 

5 Then let our humble faith address 

His mercy and his power ; 
We shall obtain delivering grace, 
In the distressing hour. 

164 

1 Now let our cheerful eyes survey 

Our great High-Priest above ; 
And celebrate his constant care. 
And sympathetic love. 

2 Though raised to a superior throne, 

Where angels bow around, 
And high o'er all the shining train, 
With matchless honors crowned ; 

3 The names of all his saints he bears 

Deep graven on his heart ; 
Nor shall the meanest Christian say, 
That he hath lost his part. 

4 Those characters shall fair abide, 

Our everlasting trust. 
When gems, and monuments, and crowns, 
Are mouldered down to dust. 

5 So, gracious Saviour ! on my breast, 

May thy dear name be worn, 
A sacred ornament and guard, 
To endless ages borne.

Exulting strike the chord ; 
Let all the earth, from shore to shore, 
Confess th' Almighty Lord. 



2 Glad shouts aloud, wide echoing round, 
The ascending God proclaim ; 
The angelic choir respond the sound, 
And shake creation's frame. 



3 They sing of death and hell o'erthrown 
In that triumphant hour ; 
And God exalts his conquering Son 
To his right hand of power. 



4 Oh, shout, ye people, and adore,

Amid his Father's throne ;

With vials full of odors sweet. 
And harps of sweeter sound.

3 Now to the Lamb that once was slain, 
Be endless blessings paid ! 
Salvation, glory, joy remain 
For ever on thy head ! 



4 Thou hast redeemed our souls with blood. 
Hast set the prisoners free, 
Hast made us kings and priests to God, 
And we shall reign with thee. 

167 

1 HosANNA to the Prince of light, 

That clothed himself in clay ; 
Entered the iron gates of death, 
And tore the bars away. 

2 See how the Conqueror mounts aloft, 

And to his Father flies. 
With scars of honor in his flesh, 
And triumph in his eyes. 

3 Raise your devotion, mortal tongues. 

To reach his blest abode ; 
Sweet be the accents of your songs 
To our incarnate God. 



4 Bright angels I strike your loudest strings, 
Your sweetest voices raise ; 
Let heaven, and all created things, 
Sound our Immanuel's praise.

Is crowned with glory now ; [thorns, 

A royal diadem adorns 
The mighty Victor's brow. 

2 The highest place that heaven affords 

Is his — is his by right, — 
The King of kings, and Lord of lords, 
And heaven's eternal Light. 

3 The joy of all who dwell above, 

The joy of all below, 
To whom he manifests his love. 
And grants his name to know.

With all its grace, is given ; 
Their name, an everlasting name, 
Their joy, the joy of heaven. 

5 They suffer with their Lord below, 

They reign with him above. 
Their profit and their joy to know 
The mystery of his love.

Though shame and death to him ; 
His people's hope, his people's wealth. 
Their everlasting theme.

Redemption's only spring, 
Creator of the world art thou.

Which laid our sins on thee. 
And led thee to a cruel death, 
To set thy people free ! 

3 But now the bonds of death are burst, 

The ransom has been paid ; 
And thou art on thy Father's throne, 
In glorious robes arrayed. 

4 Oh, may thy mighty love prevail 

Our sinful souls to spare ! 
Oh, may we stand around thy throne 
And see thy glory there ! 

5 Jesus, our only joy be thou, 

As thou our prize wilt be ; 
In thee be all our glory now 
And through eternity. 



6 All praise to thee who dost ascend 
Triumphantly to heaven ; 
All praise to God the father's Name, 
And Holy Ghost be given.

To thee death, by death defeated. 
Triumph high and glory gave.

What no mortal might could gain. 
On the eternal throne of heaven. 
In thy Father's power to reign. 

3 There thy kingdoms all adore thee, 

Heaven above and earth below, 
While the depths of hell before thee 
Trembling and defeated bow.

Follow thee above the sky ; 
Hear our prayers thy grace imploring, 
Lift our souls to thee on high. 

5 So when thou again in glory 

On the clouds of heaven shalt shine. 
We thy flock may stand before thee, 
Owned for evermore aa thine.

There thou dost our place prepare ; 
Ever for us interceding. 
Till in glory we appear.

Thou art worthy to receive : 
Loudest praises, without ceasing. 
Meet it is for us to give.

Hail, thou Galilean King I 
Thou didst suffer to release us. 
Thou didst free salvation bring. 

2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, 

All our sins on thee were laid ; 
By almighty love anointed, 
Thou hast full atonement made. 

3 All thy people are forgiven. 

Through the virtue of thy blood , 
Opened is the gate of heaven, 
Peace is made 'twixt man and God.

1 Mighty God! while angels bless thee, 

May a mortal lisp thy name ? 
Lord of men, as well as angels ! 

Thou art every creature's theme : 
Lord of every land and nation ! 

Ancient of eternal days ! 
Sounded through the wide creation, 

Be thy just and awful praise. 

2 For the grandeur of thy nature, 

Grand, beyond a seraph's thought ; 
For the wonders of creation. 

Works with skill and kindness wrought ; 
For thy providence which governs 

Through thine empire's wide domain, 
Wings an angel, guides a sparrow ; 

Blessed be thy gentle reign. 

3 For thy rich, thy free redemption, 

Bright, though veiled in darkness long, 
Thought is poor, and poor expression ; 

Who can sing that wondrous song ? 
Brightness of the Father's glory ! 

Shall thy praise unuttered lie ? 
Break, my tongue ! such guilty silence, 

Sing the Lord who came to die : 



4 From the highest throne of glory. 

To the cross of deepest woe, 
Came to ransom guilty captives ! 

Flow, my praise ! for ever flow : 
Reascend, immortal Saviour ! 

Leave thy footstool, take thy throne ; 
Thence return and reign for ever ; 

Be the kingdom all thine own ! 



174 



1 Crown his head with endless blessing, 

Who, in God the Father's name. 
With compassions never ceasing. 

Comes salvation to proclaim. 
Hail, ye saints, who know his favor, 

Who within his gates are found ; 
Hail, ye saints, the exalted Sa\dour, 

Let his courts with praise resound. 



2 Jesus, thee our Saviour hailing, 
Thee our God in praise we own ; 

Highest honors, never failing, 
Rise eternal round thy throne ; 

Now, ye saints, his power confessing, 
In your grateful strains adore ; 

For his mercy, never ceasing, 

Flows, and flows for evermore.

1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun 
Does his successive journeys run ; 

His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, 
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 

2 For him shall endless prayer be made, 
And endless praises crown his head ; 
His name, like sweet perfume, shall rise 
With every morning sacrifice. 

3 People and realms of every tongue 
Dwell on his love with sweetest song, 
A.nd infant voices shall proclaim 
Their early blessing on his name. 

4 Blessings abound where'er he reigns, 
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains, 
The weary find eternal rest. 

And all the sons of want are blest. 

5 Let every creature rise and bring 
Peculiar honors to our King ; 
Angels descend with songs again, 
And earth repeat the loud Amen.

1 Lord, when thou didst ascend on high. 
Ten thousand angels filled the sky ; 
Those heavenly guards around thee wait, 
Like chariots that attend thy state. 

2 Not Sinai's mountain could appear 
More glorious when the Lord was there; 
While he pronounced his holy law, 
And struck the chosen tribes with awe 

88 



3 How bright the triumph none can tell. 
When the rebellious powers of hell. 
That thousand souls had captive made, 
Were all in chains, like captives, led. 

4 Raised by his Father to the throne, 
He sent the promised Spirit down 
AVith gifts and grace for rebel men, 
That God might dwell on earth again. 

177 

1 He lives, the great Redeemer lives — 
What joy the blest assurance gives 1 — 
And now before his Father, God, 
Pleads the full merits of his blood. 

2 Repeated crimes awake our fears. 

And justice, armed with frowns, appears ; 
But, in the Saviour's lovely face. 
Sweet mercy smiles, and all is peace. 

3 For us he prayed, for us he taught, 
For us his daily works he wrought, 
By words, and signs, and actions, thus 
Still seeking not himself, but us. 

4 For us to wicked men betrayed, 
Scourged, mocked, in purple robes arrayed 
He bore the shameful cross and death ; 
For us at length gave up his breath. 

5 For us he rose from death again, 
For us he went on high to reign, 
For us he sent his Spirit here 

To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.

And fix them near his heavenly throne, 
In glory changeless as his own.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. 



LEBANOH. 



S. M. D. 




1 I WAS a wandering sheep, 

I did not love the fold, 
I did not love my Shepherd's voice, 

I would not be controlled : 
I was a wayward child, 

I did not love my home, 
I did not love my Father's voice, 

I loved afar to roam. 

2 The Shepherd sought his sheep, 

The Father sought his child ; 
He followed me o'er vale and hill. 

O'er deserts waste and wild : 
He found me nigh to death, 

Famished, and faint, and lone ; 
He bound me with the bands of love, 

He saved the wandering one. 

3 Jesus my Shepherd is ; 

'Twas he that loved my soul, 
'Twas he that washed me in his blood, 

'Twas he that made me whole: 
'Twas he that sought the lost. 

That found the wandering sheep ; 
'Twas he that brought me to the fold, 

'Tis he that still doth keep. 
90 



180 



No more a wandering sheep, 

I love to be controlled, 
I love my tender Shepherd's voice, 

I love the peaceful fold : 
No more a wayward child, 

I seek no more to roam ; 
I love my heavenly Father's voice, 

I love, I love his home ! 

Jesus, my strength, my hope! 

On thee I cast my care ; 
With humble confidence look up. 

And know thou hear'st my prayer ; 
Give me on thee to wait. 

Till I ^an all things do ; 
On thee — almighty to create. 

Almighty to renew. 

I rest upon thy word ; 

The promise is for me ; 
My succor and salvation. Lord 1 

Shall surely come from thee ; 
But let me still abide. 

Nor from my hope remove. 
Till thou my patient spirit guide 

Into thy perfect love. 



HIS PB VI D EN CE. 



3 I want a sober mind, 
A self- renouncing will, 
That tramples down, and casts behind. 

The baits of pleasing ill ; 
A soul inured to pain, 

To hardship, grief, and loss; 
Bold to take up, firm to sustain, 
' The consecrated cross. 



4 I want a godly fear, 

A quick discerning eye, 
That looks to thee when sin is near, 

And sees the tempter fly ; 
A spirit still prepared. 

And armed with jealous care ; 
For ever standing on its guard. 

And watching unto prayer.

1 Jesus, the Shepherd of the sheep. 
Thy Uttle flock in safety keep, 

The flock for which thou cam'st from heaven, 
The flock for which thy life was given. 

2 Thou saw'st them wandering far from thee. 
Secure, as if from danger free ; 

Thy love did all their wanderings trace, 
A.nd brought them to a wealthy place. 

3 Oh, guard thy sheep from beasts of prey, 
And guide them that they never stray ; 
Cherish the young, sustain the old, 

1 Let none be feeble in thy fold. 



I 4 Secure them from the scorching beam. 
And lead them to the li\'ing stream ; 
In verdant pastures let them lie. 
And watch them with a Shepherd's eye ! 

5 Oh, may thy sheep discern thy voice, 
And in its sacred sound rejoice ; 
From strangers may they ever flee, 
And know no other guide but thee ! 

6 Lord, bring thy sheep that wander yet, 

And let the number be complete ; 

Then let thy flock from earth rem Dve, 

And gather in the fold above.

4 Here, my soul ! thy trust repose ; 
If Jesus is for ever mine, 
Not death itself — that last of foes — 
Shall break a union so divine. 

184 

1 Jesus, my All, to heaven is gone, 
He whom I fix my hopes upon ; 
His track I see, and I '11 pursue 
The narrow way, till him I view. 

2 The way the holy prophets went. 
The road that leads from banishment. 
The King's highway of holiness, 

I '11 go ; for all his paths are peace. 

3 This is the way I long have sought, 
And mourned because I found it not ; 
My grief, my burden long has been, 
Because I could not cease from sin. 

4 The more I strove against its power 

I sinned and stumbled but the more ; 
Till late I heard my Saviour say, 
" Come hither, soul ! I am the way." 

5 Lo ! glad I come ! and thou, blest Lamb ' 
Shalt take me to thee as I am ; 
Nothing but sin I thee can give ; 
Nothing but love shall I receive. 

6 Then will I tell to sinners round 
What a dear Saviour I have found ; 
I '11 point to thy redeeming blood 
And say, Behold the way to God I 



182 

1 Jesus, the sinner's Friend I to thee, 
Lost and undone, for aid I flee ; 
Weary of earth, myself, and sin. 
Open thine arms, and take me in. 

2 Pity and heal my sin-sick soul, 

'T is thou alone canst make me whole ; 
I cannot rest till thou art mine, 
Until in me thine image shine. 

3 At last I own it cannot be, 

That I should fit myself for thee ; 
Here then, to thee, I all resign : 
Thine is the work, and only thine. 

4 What shall I say, thy grace to move ? 
Lord ! I am sin, but thou art love ; 

I give up every plea beside ; 

Lord ! I'm condemned, but thou hast died. 

183 

1 When sins and fears prevailing rise. 

And fainting hope almost expires, 
Jesus! to thee I lift mine eyes. 
To thee I breathe my soul's desires, 

2 If my immortal Saviour lives. 

Then my immortal life is sure ; 
His word a firm foundation gives ; 
Here let me build, and rest secure. 

3 Here let my faith unshaken dwell. 

For ever firm the promise stands ; 
Not all the powers of earth and hell 
Can e'er dissolve the sacred bands. 
92 



AFFECTIONS AND DUTIES. 



185 

1 O HOLY Saviour, Friend unseen ! 
Since on thine arm thou bid'st me lean, 
Help me, throughout life's varying scene, 

By faith to cling to thee, — to thee. 

2 Blest with this fellowship divine, 
Take what thou wilt, I '11 ne'er repine ; 
E'en as the branches to the vine, 

My soul would cling to thee, — to thee. 

^ Far from my home, fatigued, oppressed, 
Here have I found a place of rest ; 
An exile still, yet not unblest, 
While I can cling to thee, — to thee. 

4 What though the world deceitful prove. 
And earthly friends and hopes remove ? 
With patient, uncomplaining love 

Still would I cling to thee,— to thee. 

5 Oft, when I seem to tread alone 

Some barren waste, with thorns o'ergrown. 
Thy voice of love in gentlest tone. 
Whispers, " Still cling to me, — to me." 

6 Though faith and hope may long be tried, 
I ask not, need not, aught beside ; 

How safe, how calm, how satisfied, 
The souls that cling to thee, — to thee ! 

186 

1 Love Divine ! that stooped to share 

Our sharpest pang, our bitterest tear, 
On thee we cast each earth-born care, 
We smile at pain while thou art near. 

2 Though long the weary way we tread. 

And sorrow crown each ling'ring year, 
No path we shun, no darkness dread, 
Our heart still whisp'ring, thou art near. 

3 On ihee we fling our burd'ning woe, 

Love Divine, for ever dear ; 
Content to sufier while we know, 
Living or dying, thou art near. 



On this alone my hopes depend, 
That thou wilt plead for me, — for me. 

2 When, wearj' in the Christian race, 

Far off appears my resting place. 
And fainting I mistrust thy grace, 
Then, Saviour ! plead for me, — for me 

3 When I have erred, and gone astray, 
Afar from thine and wisdom's way. 
And see no glimmering guiding ray, 

Still, Saviour ! plead for me, — for me. 

4 When Satan, by my sins made bold. 
Strives from thy cross to loose my hold, 
Then, with thy pitying arms, enfold, 

And plead, oh plead for me, — for me. 

5 And, when my dying hour draws near. 
Darkened with anguish, guilt, and fear, 
Then to my fainting sight appear. 

Pleading in heaven for me, — for me. 

6 When the full light of heavenly day 
Eeveals my sins in dread array, 

Say thou hast washed them all away ; 
Oh, say thou plead'st for me, — for me. 



188 



187 



1 THOU, the contrite sinner's Friend; 
Who loving, lov'st them to the end ! 



1 THOU, to whose all -searching sight 
The darkness shineth as the light ! 
Search, prove my heart ; it pants for thee ; 
Oh, burst these bonds, and set it free. 

2 Wash out its stains, refine its dross ; 
Nail my affections to the cross ; 
Hallow each thought ; let all within 
Be clean, as thou, my Lord ! art clean. 

3 If in this darksome wild I stray, 

Be thou my Light, be thou my Way ; 

No foes, no violence I fear. 

No harm, while thou, my God, art near. 

4 When rising floods my soul o'erflow. 
When sinks my heart in waves of woe, 
Jesus ! thy timely aid impart, 

And raise my head and cheer my heart. 

5 Saviour ! where'er thy steps I see. 
Dauntless, untired, I follow thee ; 
Oh, let thy hand support me still, 
And lead me to thy holy hill. 

93

1 How sad our state by nature is ! 

Our sin, how deep it stains ! 
And Satan binds our captive minds 
Fast in his slavish chains. 

2 But there 's a voice of sovereign grace 

Sounds from the sacred word : 
" Ho ! ye despairing sinners ! come, 
And trust upon the Lord." 

3 My soul obeys th' almighty call, 

And runs to this relief; 
I would believe thy promise, Lord : 
Oh, help my unbelief. 

4 To the dear fountain of thy blood, 

Incarnate God ! I fly ; 
Here let me wash my spotted soul 
From stains of deepest dye. 

5 A guilty, weak and helpless worm, 

On thy kind arms I fall ; 
Be thou my strength and righteousness. 
My Jesus and my all. 

190 

1 Jesus ! thou art the sinner's Friend ; 

As such I look to thee ; 
Now, in the fullness of thy love, 
O Lord ! remember me. 

2 Remember thy pure word of grace. 

Remember Calvary, 
Remember all thy dying groans, 
And then remember me. 
94 



3 Thou wondrous Advocate with God ! 

I yield myself to thee ; 
While thou art sitting on thy throne. 
Dear Lord ! remember me. 

4 Lord ! I am guilty, I am vile, 

But thy salvation 's free ; 
Then, in thine all-abounding grace. 
Dear Lord ! remember me. 

5 And when I close my eyes in deatl i. 

When creature-helps all flee, 
Then, O my dear Redeemer God ! 
I pray, remember me. 



191 



1 Jesus, Saviour of the lost. 

My Rock and Hiding-place, 
By storms of sin and sorrow tost, 
I seek thy sheltering grace. 

2 Guilty, forgive me, Lord 1 I cry ; 

Pursued by foes, I come ; 
A sinner, save me, or I die — 
An outcast, take me home. 

3 Once safe in thine almighty arms, 

Let storms come on amain ; 
There danger never, never harms ; 
There death itself is gain. 

4 And when I stand before thy thronfl 

And all thy glories see. 
Still be my righteousness alone 
To hide myself in thee.

1 Lord! take my heart, and let it be 
For ever closed to all but thee ; 

Seal thou ray breast, and let me wear 
That pledge of love for ever there. 

2 How blest are they who still abide 
Close sheltered in thy bleeding side, 
Who thence their life and strength derive, 
And by thee move and in thee live ! 

3 What are our works but sin and death 
Till thou thy quickening Spirit breathe? 
Thou giv'st the power thy grace to move ; 
Oh, wondrous grace ! oh, boundless love ! 

4 How can it be, thou heavenly King 1 
That thou shouldst us to glory bring? 
Make slaves the partners of thy throne. 
Decked with a never-fading crown ? 

5 Hence our hearts melt ; our eyes o'erflow ; 
Our words are lost ; nor will we know, 
Nor will we think of aught beside — 

My Lord, my Love, is crucified 1 



194 



1 I LOVE, I love thee, Lord most high ! 

Because thou first has loved me ; 
I seek no other liberty 
But that of being bound to thee. 

2 May memory no thought suggest, 

But shall to thy pure glory tend, 
96 



My understanding find no rest 
Except in thee, its only end. 

3 All mine is thine ; say but the word, 

Whate'er thou wiliest shall be done ; 
I know thy love, all-gracious Lord I 
I know it seeks my good alone. 

4 Apart from thee all things are naught ; 

Then grant, my supremest Bliss, 
Grant me to love thee as I ought ; 
Thou givest all in giving this. 

195 

1 Jesus ! thy boundless love to me 

No thought can reach, no tongue declare ; 
Unite my thankful heart to thee, 
And reign without a rival there. 

2 Thy love, how cheering is its ray ! 

All pain before its presence flies ; 
Care, anguish, sorrow, melt away 
Where'er its healing beams arise. 

3 Oh, let thy love my soul inflame. 

And to thy service sweetly bind ; 
Transfuse it through my inmost frame, 
And mould me wholly to thy mind. 

4 Thy love, in sufierings, be my peace : I 

Thy love, in weakness, make me strong; 
And when the storms of life shall cease, 
Thy love shall be in heaven my song. 



AFFECTIONS AND DUTIES. 



196 

1 Oh, that my load of sin were gone! 

Oh, that I could at last submit 
At Jesus' feet to lay it down — 
To lay my soul at Jesus' feet ! 

2 Rest for my soul I long to find ; 

Saviour of all ! if mine thou art, 
Give me thy meek and lowly mind, 
And stamp thine image on my heart 

3 Break oflf the yoke of inbred sin, 

And fully set my spirit free : 
I cannot rest till pure within, 
Till I am wholly lost in thee. 

i Fain would I learn of thee, my God ! 
Thy light and easy burden prove. 
The cross, all stained with hallowed blood, 
The labor of thy dying love. 

5 I would, but thou must give the power, 

My heart from every sin release ; 
Bring near, bring near, the joyful hour. 
And fill me with thy perfect peace. 

6 Come, Lord ! the drooping sinner cheer. 

Nor let thy chariot wheels delay ; 
Appear, in my poor heart appear ! 
My God, my Saviour- 1 come away ! 

197 

1 There is none other name than thine, 
Jehovah Jesus! name divine, 

On which to rest for sins forgiven, 

For peace with God, for hope of heaven. 

2 There is none other name than thine. 
When cares and fears and griefs are mine. 
That with a gracious power can heal 
Each care and fear and grief I feel. 

8 There is none other name than thine, 
When called my spirit to resign, 
To bear me through that latest strife, 
And e'en in death to be my life. 

4 Name above every name ! thy praise 
Shall fill the remnant of my days ; 
Jehovah Jesus ! name divine, 

Rock of salvation, thou art mine. 
7 



198 

1 Deep are the wounds which sin hath made ; 

Where shall the sinner find a euro? 
In vain, alas ! is nature's aid ; 
The work exceeds all nature's power. 

2 Sin, like a raging fever, reigns 

With fatal strength in every part; 
The dire contagion fills the veins, 
And spreads its poison to the heart. 

•S And can no sovereign balm be found ? 
And is no kind physician nigh 
To ease the pain and heal the wound, 
Ere life and hope for ever fly ? 

4 There is a great Physician near ; 

Look up, fainting soul ! and live ; 
See, in his heavenly smiles appear 
Such ease as nature cannot give. 

5 See, in the Saviour's dying blood 

Life, health and bliss abundant flow : 
'Tis only this dear sacred flood 
Can ease thy pain and heal thy woe. 

199 

1 Behold the sin-atoning Lamb 

With wonder, gratitude and love ; 
To take away our guilt and shame, 
See him descending from above ! 

2 Our sins and griefs on him were laid ; 

He meekly bore the mighty load ; 
Our ransom-price he fully paid, 
In groans and tears, in sweat and blood. 

3 To save a guilty world he dies; 

Sinners, behold the bleeding Lamb! 
To him lift up your longing eyes. 
And hope for mercy in his name. 

4 Pardon and peace through him abound j 

He can the richest blessings give ; 
Salvation in his name is found ; 
He bids the dying sinner live. 

5 Jesus, my Lord, I look to thee ; 

Where else can helpless sinners go? 
Thy boundless love shall set me free 
From all my wretchedness and woe.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, 



ROSE HILL

LM. 




1 Jesus ! engrave it on my heart 
That thou the one thing needful art ; 
I could from all things parted be, 
But never, never. Lord, from thee. 

2 Needful is thy most precious blood 
To reconcile my soul to God, 
Needful is thy indulgent care, 
Needful thy all-prevailing prayer. 

8 Needful thy presence, dearest Lord, 
True peace and comfort to afford, 
Needful thy promise, to impart 
Fresh life and vigor to my heart. 

4 Needful art thou, my Guide, my Stay, 
Through all life's dark and weary way ; 
Nor less in death thou 'It needful be 
To bring my spirit home to thee. 

5 Then needful still, my God, my King, 
Thy name eternally I '11 sing ! 
Glory and praise be ever his — 

The one thing needful Jesus is! 

201 

1 Jesus, the spring of joys divine 

Whence all our hopes and comforts flow- 
Jesus, no other name but thine 
Can save us from eternal woe. 

2 In vain would boasting reason find 

I'he way to happiness and God ; 
98 



Her weak directions leave the mind 
Bewildered in a dubious road. 

3 No other name will heaven approve ; 

Thou art the true, the living way, 
Ordained by everlasting love, 
To the bright realms of endless day. 

4 Safe lead us through this world of night. 

And bring us to the blissful plains, 
The regions of unclouded light. 
Where perfect joy for ever reigns. 

202 

1 Complete in thee ! no work of mine 
May take, dear Lord, the place of thine ; 
Thy blood has pardon bought for me, 
And 1 am now complete in thee. 

2 Complete in thee ! no more shall sin 
Thy grace has conquered reign within ; 
Thy voice will bid the tempter flee, 
And I shall stand complete in thee. 

3 Complete in thee ! each want supplied, 
And no good thing to me denied ; 
Since thou my portion. Lord, wilt be, 

I ask no more, complete in thee. 

4 Dear Saviour ! when, before thy bar, 
All tribes and tongues assembhid are, 
Among thy chosen may I be 

At thy right hand, complete in thee. 



AFFECTIONS AND DUTIES. 



203 

1 Jesus demands this heart of mine — 

Demands my wish, my joy, my care ; 
But, ah ! how dead to things divine, 
How cold, my best affections are ! 

2 'Tis sin, alas ! with dreadful power. 

Divides my Saviour from my sight ; 
Oh, for one happy, shining hour 
Of sacred freedom, sweet delight ! 

3 Oh, let thy love shine forth and raise 

My captive powers from sin and death. 
And fill my heart and life with praise. 
And tune my last expiring breath. 

204 

1 On, that I could for ever dwell. 

With Mary, at the Saviour's feet, 
And view the form I love so well. 
And all his tender words repeat. 

2 The world shut out from all my soul. 

And heaven brought in with all its bliss ; 
Oh, is there aught, from pole to pole. 
One moment, to compare with this? 

3 This is the hidden life I prize — 

A life of penitential love ; 
When most my follies I despise. 
And raise my highest thoughts above ; 

4 When all I am I clearly see, 

And freely own, with deepest shame ; 
When the Eedeemer's love to me 
Kindles within a deathless flame. 

5 Thus would I live till nature fail. 

And all my former sins forsake ; 
I Then rise to God, within the veil, 
( And of eternal joys partake. 

1205 

1 1 Thou only Sovereign of my heart. 
My Refuge, my almighty Friend, 
How can my soul from thee depart. 
On whom alone my hopes depend ? 

2 Whither, ah ! whither, shall I go, 

A wretched wand'rer from my Lord ? 
Can this dark world of sin and woe 
I One glimpse of happiness afford ? 

3 Thy name my inmost powers adore, 

Thou art my life, my joy, my care ; 
D Bpart from thee ! 'tis death, 'tis more— 
'Tis endless ruin, deep despair ! 



4 Low at thy feet my soul would lie, 

Here safety dwells and peace divine; 
Still let me live beneath thine eye, 
For life, eternal life, is thine. 

206 

1 Ah, wretched, vile, ungrateful heart, 
That can from Jesus thus depart. 
Thus, fond of trifles, vainly rove, 
Forgetful of a Saviour's love ! 

2 In vain I charge my thoughts to stay, 
And chide each vanity away ; 
There's naught beneath a power divine 
That can this roving heart confine. 

3 Jesus ! to thee I would return. 

At thy dear feet, repentant, mourn ; 
There let me view thy pardoning love^ 
And never from thy sight remove. 

4 Oh, let thy love, with sweet control. 
Bind all the passions of my soul ; 
Bid every vanity depart. 

And dwell for ever in my heart. 

207 

1 Not yet, ye people of his grace. 
Ye see your Saviour face to face ; 
Not yet rejoicing eyes ye bring 
Unto the glory of your King. 

2 Ye follow in his steps below. 
Along his thorny way ye go. 
Ye stand his bitter cross beside, 
Ye cling to him, the Crucified. 

3 Upon his grace ye banquet here ; 

Ye know him true, ye feel him near ; 
The balm of his dear blood ye bless ; 
Ye wear his robe of righteousness. 

4 But greater shall the wonder grow, 
But mightier shall the joy o'erflow ; 
Upon your Lord ye yet shall gaze 
And look your love and sweet amaze. 

5 Oh, make me meet for joy like this ! 
Oh, grant me grace to bear the bliss I 
To set my heart on thee below, 
Nor other lord or love to know. 

6 Then shall I set mine eyes on thee 
The King in all his beauty see ; 
And gazing on for evermore. 
Glow with the beauty I adore.

1 Now 1 resolve with all my heart, 

AVith all my powers, to serve the Lord, 
Nor from his precepts e'er depart 
Whose service is a rich reward. 

2 Oh, be this service all my joy ! 

Around let my example shine. 
Till others love the blest employ, 
And join in labors so divine. 

3 Be this the purpose of my soul. 

My solemn, my determined, choice. 
To yield to his supreme control. 
And in his kind commands rejoice. 

4 Oh, may I never faint nor tire. 

Nor wandering leave his sacred ways ; 
Great God ! accept my soul's desire, 
And give me strength to live thy praise. 

209 

1 My gracious Lord ! I own thy right 

To every service I can pay ; 
And call it my supreme delight

Its sure support, its noblest end, 
Thine ever-smiling face to see, 
And serve the cause of such a Friend? 

3 I would not breathe for worldly joy. 

Or to increase my worldly good ; 
Nor future days or powers employ 
To spread a sounding name abroad.

4 'Tis to my Saviour I would live, 

To him who for my ransom died ; 
Nor could untainted Eden give 
Such bliss as blossoms at his side. 

5 His work my hoary age shall bless 

When youthful vigor is no more, 
And my last hour of life confess 
His dying love, his saving power. 

210 

1 On, happy day that fixed my choice 

On thee, my Saviour and my God ! 
Well may this glowing heart rejoice, 
And tell its raptures all abroad. 

2 Oh, happy bond that seals my vows 

To him who merits all my love ! 
Let cheerful anthems fill his house 
While to that sacred shrine I move. 

3 'Tis done — the great transaction's done ; 

I am my Lord's and he is mine ; 
He drew me, and I followed on, 
Rejoiced to own the call divine. 

4 Now rest, my long-divided heart ! 

Fixed on this blissful centre, rest ; 
Here have I found a nobler part, 
Here heavenly pleasures fill my breast. 

5 High heaven, that hears the solemn vow, 

That vow renewed shall daily hear ; 
Till in life's latest hour I bow. 

And bless in death a bond so dear. 



AFFECTIONS AND DUTIES. 



211 

1 Lord ! I am thine, entirely thine, 
Purchased and saved by blood divine ; 
With full consent thine I would be, 
And own thy sovereign right in me. 

2 Grant one poor sinner more a place 
Among the children of thy grace — 
A wretched sinner, lost to God, 
But ransomed by Immanuel's blood. 

3 Thee my new Master now I call, 
And consecrate to thee my all ; 
Thine would I live, thine would I die, 
Be thine through all eternity. 

212 

1 Forth in thy name, Lord ! I go. 

My daily labor to pursue. 
Thee, only thee, resolved to know, 
In all I think or speak or do. 

2 Give me to bear thine easy yoke. 

And every moment watch and pray. 
And still to things eternal look, 
And hasten to thy glorious day. 

3 Fain would I still for thee employ 

Whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given, 
And run my course with even joy, 
And closely walk with thee to heaven. 

213 

1 And dost thou say, "Ask what thou wilt"? 

Lord! I would seize the golden hour; 
I pray to be released from guilt. 
And freed from sin and Satan's power. 

2 More of thy presence, Lord ! impart ; 

More of thine image let me bear ; 
Erect thy throne within my heart, 
And reign without a rival there. 

3 Give me to real my pardon sealed. 

And from thy joy to draw my strength, 
To have thy boundless love revealed 
In all its height and breadth and length. 

i Grant these requests ; I ask no more, 
But to thy care the rest resign ; 
Sick or in health or rich or poor. 
All shall be well if thou art mine. 



214 

1 Let me but hear my Saviour say, 

" Strength shall be equal to thy day ;" 
Then I rejoice in deep distress, 
Leaning on all-sufficient grace. 

2 I glory in infirmity. 

That Christ's own power may rest on me 
When I am weak, then am I strong : 
Grace is my shield, and Christ my song. 

3 I can do all things, or can bear 

All sufferings, if my Lord be there ; 
Sweet pleasures mingle with the pains 
While his kind hand my soul sustains. 

215 

1 So let our lips and lives express 
The holy gospel we profess ; 

So let our works and virtues shine 
To prove the doctrine all divine. 

2 Thus shall we best proclaim abroad 
The honors of our Saviour God, 
When his salvation reigns within. 
And grace subdues the power of sin. 

3 Religion bears our spirits up. 
While we expect that blessed hope 
The bright appearance of the Lord, 
And faith stands leaning on his word. 

216 

1 My dear Redeemer and my Lord ! 
I read my duty in thy word : 

But in thy life the law appears 
Drawn out in li\ang characters. 

2 Such was thy truth, and such thy zeal. 
Such def 'rence to thy Father's will, 
Such love, and meekness so divine, 

I would transcribe and make them mine 

3 Cold mountains and the midnight air 
Witnessed the fervor of thy prayer ; 
The desert thy temptations knew, 
Thy conflict and thy vict'ry too. 

4 Be thou my pattern ; make me bear 
More of thy gracious image here ; 
Then God the Judge shall own my narie. 
Among the foll'wers of the Lamb.

1 In evil long I took delight, 

Unawed by shame or fear, 
Till a new object struck my sight 
And stopped my wild career. 

2 I saw One hanging on a tree 

In agonies and blood, 
Who fixed his languid eyes on me 
As near his cross I stood. 

% Sure never till my latest breath 
Can I forget that look : 
It seemed to charge me with his death, 
Though not a word he spoke. 

4 My conscience felt and owned the guilt, 

And plunged me in despair ; 
I saw my sins his blood had spilt, 
And helped to nail him there. 

5 Alas ! I knew not what I did ! 

But now my tears are vain : 
Where shall my trembling soul be hid ? 
For I the Lord have slain ! 

6 A second look he gave, which said, 

" I freely all forgive ; 
This blood is for thy ransom paid ; 
I die that thou mayst live." 

7 Thus, while his death my sin displays 

In all its bla ;kest hue. 
Such is the mystery of grace, 
It seals my pardon too. 
102 



218 



1 Oh, may my heart, by grace renewed. 
Be my Redeemer's throne ; 

And be my stubborn will subdued, 
His government to own. 

2 Let deep repentance, faith and love 
Be joined with godly fear, 

And all my conversation prove 
My heart to be sincere. 

3 Preserve me from the snares of sin 
Through my remaining days, 

And in me let each virtue shine 
To my Redeemer's praise. 

4 Let lively hope my soul inspire ; 
Let warm affections rise ; 

And may I wait with strong desire 
To mount above the skies ! 

219 

1 Dear Saviour ! when my thoughts recall 

The wonders of thy grace, 
Low at thy feet ashamed I fall, 
And hide this wretched face. 

2 Shall love like thine be thus repaid? 

Ah, vile, ungrateful heart ! 
By earth's low cares so oft betrayed 
From Jesus to depart. 

3 Oh, while I breathe to thee, my Lord, 

The penitential sigh. 
Confirm the kind, forgiving word, 
With pity in thine eye !

1 Prostrate, dear Jesus, at thy feet 

A guilty rebel lies, 
And upward to thy mercy-seat 
Presumes to lift his eyes. 

2 If tears of sorrow would suffice 

To pay the debt I owe, 
Tears should from both my weeping eyes 
In ceaseless torrents flow. 

3 But no such sacrifice I plead 

To expiate my guilt ; 
No tears but those which thou hast shed, 
No blood but thou hast spilt. 

4 Tliink of thy sorrows, dearest Lord ! 

And all my sins forgive ; 
Justice will well approve the word 
That bids the sinner live. 

221 

1 When, wounded sore, the stricken soul 

Lies bleeding and unbound. 

One only hand, a pierced hand, 

Can heal the sinner's wound. 

2 When sorrow swells the laden breast 

And tears of anguish flow. 
One only heart, a broken heart, 
Can feel the sinner's woe, 

3 "V^'hen penitence has wept in vain 

Over some foul, dark spot, 



One only stream, a stream of blooa, 
Can wash away the blot. 

4 'T is Jesus' blood that washes white, 

His hand that brings relief: 
His heart that's touched with all our joys. 
And feeleth for our grief. 

5 Lift up thy bleeding hand, Lord ! 

Unseal that cleansing tide ; 
We have no shelter from our sin 
But in thy wounded side. 

222 

1 Oh, for that tenderness of heart 

That bows before the Lord, 
That owns how just and good thou art, 
And trembles at thy word. 

2 Oh, for those humble, contrite tears 

Which from repentance flow, 
That sense of guilt which, trembling, fears 
The long-suspended blow. 

3 Saviour ! to me in pity give. 

For sin, the deep distress. 
The pledge thou wilt at last receive, 
And bid me die in peace. 

4 Oh, fill my soul with faith and love, 

And strength to do thy will ; 
Raise my desires and hopes above, 
Thyself to me reveal.

Nor from his cause will we depart, 
Nor ever quit the field. 

3 "We trust not in our native strength, 

But on his grace rely ; 
May he, with our returning wants, 
A needful aid supply. 

4 Oh, guide our doubtful feet aright, 

And keep us in thy ways; 
And while we turn our vows to prayers, 
Turn thou our prayers to praise. 

225 

1 I'm not ashamed to own my Lord, 

Or to defend his cause. 
Maintain the honor of his word, 
The glory of his cross. 

2 Jesus, my God ! I know his name, 

His name is all my trust ; 
Nor will he put my soul to shame, 
Nor let my hope be lost. 

3 Firm as his throne his promise stands^ 

And he can well secure 
What I've committed to his hands 
Till the decisive hour. 

4 Then will he own my worthless ramo 

Before his Father's face. 

And in the new Jerusalem 

Appoint my soul a place. 



223 



1 Must Jesus bear the cross alone. 

And all the world go free ? 
No ; there's a cross for every one, 
And there's a cross for me. 

2 The consecrated cross I'll bear 

Till death shall set me free, 
And then go home my crown to wear. 
For there's a crown for me. 

3 Upon the crystal pavement, down 

At Jesus' pierced feet. 
Joyful, I'll cast my golden crown. 
And his dear name repeat. 

4 And palms shall wave and harps shall ring 

Beneath heaven's arches high ; 
The Lord that lives, the ransomed sing. 
That lives no more to die. 

5 Oh, precious cross ! oh, glorious crown ! 

Oh, resurrection day ! 
Ye angels, from the stars come down. 
And bear my soul away. 

224 

1 Ye men and angels ! witness now, 

Before the Lord we speak ; 
To him we make our solemn vow, 
A vow we dare not break — 

2 That long as life itself shall last 

Ourselves to Christ we yield ;

1 Lord ! as to thy dear cross we flee 

And plead to be forgiven, 
So let thy life our pattern be, 
And form our souls for heaven. 

2 Help us, through good report and ill, 

Our daily cross to bear ! 
Like thee, to do our Father's will, 
Our brethren's griefs to share. 

S Let grace our selfishness expel, 
Our earthliness refine. 
And kindness in our bosoms dwell 
As free and true as thine. 

4 If joy shall at thy bidding fly. 
And grief's dark day come on, 
We, in our turn, would meekly cry, 
" Father ! thy will be done !" 

227 

I 1 And must I part with all I have, 
I My dearest Lord, for thee ? 

It is but right, since thou hast done 
Kich more than this for me. 

I 2 Ten thousand worlds, ten thousand lives, 
How worthless they appear. 
Compared with thee, supremely good, 
Divinely bright and fair ! 

3 Sa\iour of souls, while I from thee 
A single smile obtain. 
Though destitute of all things else, 
I'll glory in my gain. 



228 

1 Fount of good, to own thy love 

Our thankful hearts incline : 
What can we render, Lord, to thee, 
When all the worlds are thine ? 

2 But thou hast needy brethren here. 

Partakers of thy grace. 
Whose names thou wilt thyself confess 
Before the Father's face. 

3 In each sad accent of distress 

Thy pleading voice is heard ; 
In them thou mayst be clothed and fed, 
And visited and cheered. 

4 Help us then, Lord, thy yoke to wear, 

To joy to do thy will ; 
Each other's burdens gladly bear, 
And love's sweet law fulfill. 

5 Thy face with reverence and with love 

We in thy poor would see, 
And while we minister to them 
Would do it as to thee. 

6 Do thou, Lord, our alms accept, 

And with thy blessing speed ; 
Bless us in giving ; greatly bless 
Our gifts to them that need. 

7 To Father, Son and Holy Ghost, 

The God whom we adore, 
Be glorj% as it was, is now. 
And shall be evermore.

1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds 

In a believer's ear ! 
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds 
And drives away his fear. 

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole, 

And calms the troubled breast ; 
'Tis manna to the hungry soul. 
And to the weary, rest. 

3 Jesus ! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend, 

My Prophet, Priest and King ! 
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End ! 
Accept the praise I bring. 

4 Weak is the effort of my heart, 

And cold my warmest thought ; 
But when I see thee as thou art, 
I'll praise thee as I ought. 

5 Till then I would thy love proclaim 

With every fleeting breath ; 
And may the music of thy name 
Refresh my soul in death. 

230 

1 Jesus, my Saviour \ bind me fast 

In cords of heavenly love ; 
Then sweetly draw me to thy breast. 
Nor let me thence remove. 

2 Draw me from all created good. 

From self, the world and sin, 
To the dear fountain of thy blood. 
And make me pure within. 
106 



3 Oh, lead me to thy mercy -seat. 

Attract me nearer still : 
Draw me, like Mary, to thy feet, 
To sit and learn thy will. 

4 Oh, draw me by thy providence. 

Thy Spirit and thy word. 
From all the things of time and sense. 
To thee, my gracious Lord. 



231 



1 Jesus! these eyes have never seen 

That radiant form of thine ; 
The veil of sense hangs dark between 
Thy blessed face and mine. 

2 I see thee not, I hear thee not, 

Yet art thou oft with me. 
And earth hath ne'er so dear a spot 
As where I meet with thee. 

3 Like some bright dream that comes unsought 

When slumbers o'er me roll. 
Thine image ever fills my thought. 
And charms my ravished soul. 

4 Yet though I have not seen, and still 

Must rest in faith alone, 
I love thee, dearest Lord ! and will, 
Unseen, but not unknown. 

5 When death these mortal eyes shall seal, 

And still this throbbing heart, 
The rending veil shall thee reveal 
All glorious as thou art.

1 Jesus ! the very thought of thee 

With sweetness fills my breast ; 
But sweeter far thy face to see. 
And in thy presence rest. 

2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, 

Nor can the memory find, 
A sweeter sound than thy blest name, 
Saviour of mankind 1 

3 Hope of every contrite heart, 

O Joy of all the meek ! 
To those who fall how kind thou art, 
How good to those who seek ! 

4 But what to those that find? Ah ! this 

Nor tongue nor pen can show ; 
The love of Jesus — what it is 
None but his loved ones know. 

233 

1 The Saviour ! oh what endless charms 
Dwell in the blissful sound ! 
Its influence every fear disarms. 
And spreads sweet comfort round. 

Txi' almighty Former of the skies 

Stooped to our vile abode, 
While angels viewed with wond'ring eyes, 

And hailed th' incarnate God. 

S Oh, the rich depth of love divine ! 
Of bliss a boundless store ! 



Dear Saviour ! let me call thee mine, 
I cannot wish for more. 

4 On thee alone my hope relies, 
Beneath thy cross I fall ; 
My Lord, my Life, my Sacrifice, 
My Saviour and my All. 



234 



1 Dearest of all the names above, 

My Jesus and my God ! 
Who can resist thy heavenly love, 
Or trifle with thy blood? 

2 'Tis by the merits of thy death 

The Father smiles again ; 
'Tis by thine interceding breath 
The Spirit dwells with men. 

3 Till God in human flesh I see 

My thoughts no comfort find ; 
The holy, just and sacred Three 
Are terrors to my mind. 

4 But if Immanuel's face appear, 

My hope, my joy, begins ; 
His name forbids my slavish fear. 
His grace removes my sins. 

5 While Jews on their own law rely. 

And Greeks of wisdom boast, 
I love th' incarnate mystery. 
And there I fix my trust.

1 Lord ! it belongs not to my care 

Whether I die or live ; 
To love and serve thee is my share, 
And this thy grace must give. 

2 If life be long, I will be glad 

That I may long obey ; 
If short, yet why should I be sad 
To soar to endless day ? 

3 Christ leads me through no darker rooms 

Than he went through before ; 
He that into God's kingdom comes 
Must enter by this door. 

4 Come, Lord, when grace hath made me meet 

Thy blessed face to see ; 
For if thy work on earth be sweet, 
What will thy glory be ? 



236 



1 THOU from whom all goodness flows, 

I lift my heart to thee ; 
In all my sorrows, conflicts, woes, 
Good Lord, remember me. 

2 If on my aching, burdened heart 

My sins lie heavily. 
Thy pardon grant, thy peace impart: 
In love remember me. 

3 If trials sore obstruct my way, 

And ills I cannot flee. 
Then let my strength be as my day ; 
Good Lord, remember me. 
108 



4 If worn with pain, disease and grief 

This feeble frame should be, 
Grant patience, rest and kind relief: 
Good Lord, remember me. 

5 And oh, when in the hour of death 

I bow to thy decree, 
Jesus ! receive my parting breath : 
Good Lord, remember me. 

237 

1 If Christ is mine, then all is mine. 

And more than angels know : 
Both present things and things to ccme. 
And grace and glory too. 

2 If he is mine, I need not fear 

The rage of earth and hell ; 
He will support my feeble frame, 
And all their power repel. 

3 If he is mine, let friends forsake. 

And earthly comforts flee ; 

He, the Dispenser of all good, 

Is more than these to me. 

4 If he is mine, I'll fearless pass 

Through death's tremendous val»; 
He'll be my comfort and my stay 
When heart and flesh shall fail. 

5 Let Jesus tell me he is mine ; 

I nothing want beside : 
My soul shall at the Fountain live 
When all the streams are dried.

1 Sweet was the time when first I felt 

The Saviour's pard'ning blood 
Applied to cleanse my soul from guilt, 
And bring me home to God. 

2 Soon as the morn the light revealed 

His praises tuned my tongue ; 
And when the evening shades prevailed, 
His love was all my song. 

3 In prayer my soul drew near the Lord 

And saw his glory shine ; 
Aad when I read his holy word, 
I called each promise mine. 

4 But now, when evening shade prevails, 

My soul in darkness mourns : 
And when the morn the light reveals, 
No light to me returns. 

5 Rise, Lord ! and help me to prevail ; 

Oh, make my soul thy care ; 
I know thy mercy cannot fail — 
Let me that mercy share. 



239 



1 Thou art the Way — to thee alone 

From sin and death we flee ; 
And he who would the Father seek 
Must seek him, Lord ! by thee. 

2 Ihou art the Truth — thy word alone 

True wisdom can impart ; 
Thou only canst instruct the mind 
And purify the heart. 



3 Thou art the Life— the rending tomb 

Proclaims thy conquering arm ; 
And those who put their trust in thee 
Nor death nor hell shall harm. 

4 Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life; 

Grant us that Way to know, 
That Truth to keep, that Life to win^ 
Whose joys eternal flow. 

240 

1 All ye who seek for sure relief 

In trouble and distress. 
Whatever sorrows vex the mind, 
Or guilt the soul oppress, 

2 Jesus, who gave himself for you 

Upon the cross to die. 
Opens to you his sacred heart : 
Oh, to that heart draw nigh. 

3 Ye hear how kindly he invites ; 

Ye hear his words so blest : 
" All ye that labor, come to me, 
And I will give you rest." 

4 O Jesus ! joy of saints on high, 

Thou hope of sinners here. 
Attracted by those loving words, 
To thee I lift my prayer. 

5 Wash thou my wounds in that dear blood 

Which forth from thee doth flow ; 
New grace, new hope, inspire; a new 
And better heart bestow.

1 My God ! the spring of all my joys 

The life of my delights, 
The glory of my brightest days, 
And comfort of my nights. 

2 In darkest shades, if he appear, 

My dawning is begun ; 
He is my soul's bright morning star, 
And he my rising sun. 

3 The opening heavens around me shine 

With beams of sacred bliss, 
While Jesus shows his heart is mine, 
And whispers I am his. 

4 My soul would leave this heavy clay

Kun up with joy the shining way 
To embrace my dearest Lord. 

5 Fearless of hell and ghastly death, 

I'd break through every foe ; 
The wings of love and arms of faith 
Should bear me conqueror through.

Whom I unseen adore !

5 Jesus, my Lord, my life, my light ! 

Oh, come with blissful ray ; 
Break radiant through the shades of night 
And chase my fears away. 

243 

1 Lord ! I would delight in thee. 

And on thy care depend ; 

To thee in every trouble flee, 

My best my only Friend ! 

2 When ail created streams are dried, 

Thy fullness is the same ; 
May I with this be satisfied, 
And glory in thy name. 

3 No good in creatures can be found 

But may be found in thee ; 
I must have all things, and abound, 
While God is God to me. 

4 Lord ! I cast my care on thee ; 

I triumph and adore , 
Henceforth my great concern shall be 
To love and praise thee more.

1 My God ! I love thee, not because 

I hope for heaven thereby ; 
Nor yet because, if I love not, 
I must for ever die. 

2 Thou, O my Jesus 1 thou didst me 

Upon the cross embrace ; 
For me didst bear the nails and spear, 
And manifold disgrace. 

3 And griefs and torments numberless, 

And sweat of agony, 
Yea, death itself; and all for me, 
Who was thine enemy. 

4 Then why, blessed Jesus Christ ! 

Should I not love thee well ? 
Not for the sake of winning heaven, 
Nor of escaping hell ; 

5 Not with the hope of gaining aught ; 

Not seeking a reward ; 
But as thyself hast loved me, 
O ever-loving Lord ! 

6 So would I love thee, dearest Lord I 

And in thy praise will sing ; 



Solely because thou art my God, 
And my eternal King. 

245 

1 Lord Jesus! are we one with thee? 

Oh height, oh depth, of love ! 
With thee we died upon the tree, 
In thee we live above. 

2 Such was thy grace that for our sake 

Thou didst from heaven come down^ 
Thou didst of flesh and blood partake, 
In all our sorrows one. 

3 Our sins, our guilt, in love divine. 

Confessed and borne by thee, 
The gall, the curse, the wrath, were thine 
To set thy members free. 

4 Ascended now in glory bright, 

Still one with us thou art ; 
Nor life, nor death, nor depth, nor height, 
Thy saints and thee can part. 

5 Soon, soon shall come that glorious day 

When, seated on thy throne, 

Thou shalt to wondering worlds display 

That thou with us art one. 

Ill 



THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

1 Do not I love thee, my Lord ? 

Behold my heart, and see ; 
And turn each worthless idol ont 
That dares to rival thee. 

2 Do not I love thee from my soul ? 

Then let me nothing love ; 
Dead be my heart to every joy 
Which thou dost not approve. 

3 Is not thy name melodious still 

To mine attentive ear ? 
Doth not each pulse with pleasure bound 
My Saviour's voice to hear? 

4 Hast thou a lamb in all thy flock 

I would disdain to feed ? 
Hast thou a foe before whose face 
I fear thy cause to plead ? 

5 Would not my heart pour forth its blood 

In honor of thy name, 
And challenge the cold hand of death 
To damp the immortal flame? 

6 Thou know'st I love thee, dearest Lord ! 

But oh, I long to soar 
Far from the sphere of mortal joys, 
And learn to love thee more. 

247 

1 Let worldly minds the world pursue — 

It has no charms for me ; 
Once I admired its trifles too, 
But grace hath set me free. 

2 Ite joys can now no longer please, 

Nor e'en content afibrd ; 
112 



Far from my heart be joys like these, 
For I have seen the Lord. 

3 As by the light of opening day 

The stars are all concealed. 
So earthly pleasures fade away 
When Jesus is revealed. 

4 Creatures no more divide my choice — 

I bid them all depart ; 
His name, his love, his gracious voioe, 
Have fixed my roving heart. 

5 And may I hope that thou wilt own 

A worthless worm like me ? 
Dear Lord ! I would be thine alon-e, 
And wholly live to thee. 

248 

1 Compared with Christ, in all beside 

No comeliness I see ; 
The one thing needful, dearest Lord I 
Is to be one with thee. 

2 The sense of thy expiring love 

Into my soul convey ; 
Thyself bestow ; for thee alone, 
My All-in-all, I pray. 

3 Less than thyself will not suffice 

My comfort to restore ; 
More than thyself I cannot crave, 
And thou canst give no more. 

4 Whate'er consists not with thy love, 

Oh, teach me to resign ; 
I'm rich to all th' intents of bliss 
If thou, God, art mine.

1 Jesus, I love thy charming name, 

'Tis music to mine ear ; 
Fain would I sound it out so loud 
That earth and heaven should hear. 

2 Yes, thou art precious to my soul, 

My transport and my trust ; 
Jewels to thee are gaudy toys, 
And gold is sordid dust. 

3 All my capacious powers can wish 

In thee doth richly meet ; 
Nor to mine eyes is light so dear, 
Nor friendship half so sweet. 

4 Thy grace still dwells upon my heart, 

And sheds its fragrance there, 
The noblest balm of all its wounds, 
The cordial of its care. 

5 I'll speak the honors of thy name 

With my last lab'ring breath ; 
Then speechless clasp thee in mine arms, 
The antidote of death. 

250 

1 Jesus ! thou the beauty art 

Of angel worlds above ; 
Thy name is music to the heart, 
Enchanting it with love. 

2 O Jesus, Saviour ! hear the sighs 

Which unto thee I send ; 
To thee mine inmost spirit cries, 
My being's hope and end. 



3 Stay with us. Lord ! and with thy light 
Illume the soul's abyss ; 
Scatter the darkness of our night, 
And fill the world with bliss. 

4 Jesus, King of earth and heaven ! 
Our life and joy ! to thee 
Be honor, thanks and blessings given 
Through all eternity ! 

251 

1 Jesus ! King most wonderful, 

Thou Conqueror renowned, 
Thou sweetness most inefiable, 
In whom all joys are found! 

2 When once thou \isitest the heart, 

Then truth begins to shine ; 
Then earthly vanities depart ; 
Then kindles love divine. 

3 Jesus, Light of all below ! 

Thou Fount of life and fire ! 
Surpassing all the joys we know, 
All that we can desire, 

4 May every heart confess thy name, 

And ever thee adore ; 
And seeking thee, itself inflame 
To seek thee more and more. 

5 Thee may our tongues for ever bless ; 

Thee may we love alone ; 

And ever in our lives express 

The image of thine own.

1 Jesus, thou art my righteousness, 

For all my sins were thine ; 
Thy death hath bought of God my peace. 
Thy life hath made him mine. 

2 Spotless and just in thee I am ; 

I feel my sins forgiven ; 
I taste salvation in thy name, 
And antedate my heaven. 

3 For ever here my rest shall be. 

Close to thy bleeding side ; 
This all my hope and all my plea, 
For me the Saviour died ! 

4 My dying Saviour and my God, 

Fountain for guilt and sin. 
Sprinkle me ever with thy blood. 
And cleanse and keep me clean ! 

5 Wash me, and make me thus thine own ; 

Wash me, and mine thou art ; 
Wash me, but not my feet alone — 
My hands, my head, my heart I 

6 The atonement of thy blood apply, 

Tir faith to sight improve. 
Till hope in full fruition die. 
And all my soul be love. 

114 



253 

1 THOU whose sacred feet have trod 
The thorny path of woe ! 
Forbid that I should slight the rod 
Or faint beneath the blow. 



2 My spirit to its chastening stroke 

I meekly would resign, 
Nor murmur at the heaviest yoke 
That tells me I am thine. 

3 Give me the spirit of thy trust 

To suffer as a son, 
To say, though lying in the dust, 
My father's will be done. 

4 I know that trial works for ends 

Too high for sense to trace. 
That oft in dark attire he sends 
Some embassy of grace. 

5 May none depart till I have gained 

The blessing which it bears. 
And learn, though late, I entertained 
An angel unawares. 



6 So shall I bless the hour that sent 
The mercy of the rod. 
And build an altar by the tent 
Where I have met with God.

1 When languor and disease invade 

This trembling house of clay, 
'Tis sweet to look beyond the flesh, 

And long to fly away — 
Sweet to look inward, and attend 

The whispers of his love ; 
Sweet to look upward to the place 

AVhere Jesus pleads above ; 

2 Sweet to reflect how grace divine 

My sins on Jesus laid ; 
Sweet to remember that his blood 

My debt of sufierings paid ; 
Sweet on his righteousness to stand, 

Which saves from second death ; 
Sweet to experience, day by day, 

His Spirit's quickening breath ; 

^ Sweet, in the confidence of faith, 

To trust his firm decrees; 
Sweet to lie passive in his hands, 

And know no will but his. 
If such the sweetness of the stream. 

What must the fountain be 
Where saints and angels draw their bliss 

Immediately from thee ? 



1255 

i 1 I HEARD the voice of Jesus say, 

" Come unto me and rest ! 
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down 

Thy head upon my breast." 
I came to Jesus as I was, 

Weary, and worn, and sad ; 
I found in him a resting-place, 

And he has made me glad. 

2 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

" Behold, I freely give 
The living water : thirsty one, 

Stoop down and drink, and live." 
I came to Jesus, and I drank 

Of that life-giving stream ; 
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, 

And now I live in him. 

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

" I am this dark world's light ; 
Look unto me : thy morn shall rise 

And all thy days be bright." 
T looked to Jesus, and I found 

In him my Star, my Sun ; 
And in that light of life I'll walk. 

Till traveling days are done.

1 Jesus Christ! if aught there be 

That, more than all beside, 
In ever painful memory 
Must in my heart abide, 

2 It is that deep ingratitude 

Which I to thee have shown. 
Who didst for me in tears and blood 
Upon the cross atone. 

3 Alas ! how with my actions all 

Has this defect entwined ! 
How has it poisoned with its gall 
My spirit, heart and mind ! 

4 Alas ! through this, how many a gem 

I've rudely cast away 
That might have formed my diadem 
In everlasting day ! 

5 Yet though the time be past and gone, 

Though little more remains. 
Though naught is all that can be done 
E'en with my utmost pains, 

6 Still will I strive, Saviour mine I 

To do what in me lies ; 
For never did thy glance divine 
A contrite hnart despise. 
116 



257 



1 Shepherd divine, our wants relieve 

In this our evil day ; 
To all thy tempted followers give 
The power to trust and pray. 

2 Long as our fiery trials last. 

Long as the cross we bear. 
Oh, let our souls on thee be cast 
In never-ceasing prayer. 

3 Thy holy Spirit's praying grace 

Give us in faith to claim ; 
To wrestle till we see thy face, 
And know thy hidden name. 

4 Till thou the Father's love impart, 

Till thou thyself bestow, 
Be this the cry of every heart, 
I will not let thee go— 

5 I will not let thee go unless 

Thou tell thy name to me ; 
With all thy great salvation bless, 
And say, " I died for thee." 

6 Then let me on the mountain-top 

Behold thine open face. 
Till faith in sight is swallowed up, 
And prayer in endless praise.

1 Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord ! 

Forgive me if I say, 
For very love, thy sacred name 
A thousand times a day. 

2 I love thee so I know not how 

My transports to control ; 
Thy love is like a burning fire 
Within my very soul. 

3 Oh, wonderful, that thou shouldst let 

So vile a heart as mine 
Love thee with such a love as this. 
And make so free with thine ! 

4 Light in darkness! Joy in grief! 

heaven begun on earth ! 
Jesus, my Love, my Treasure ! who 
Can tell what thou art worth ? 

WALDRON. 



259 



1 THOU who driest the mourner's tear ! 

How dark this world would be 
If, when deceived and wounded here, 
We could not fly to thee ! 

2 The friends who in our sunshine live 

When winter comes are flown ; 
And he who has but tears to give 
Must weep those tears alone. 

3 Oh, who would bear life's stormy doom 

Did not thy wing of love 
Come, brightly wafting through the gloom 
Our peace-branch from above ? 

4 Then sorrow, touched by thee, grows bright 

With more than rapture's ray, 
As darkness shows us worlds of light 
We never saw by day.

1 Oh that I could repent, 

With all my idols part, 
And to thy gracious eye present 
A humble, contrite heart ! 

2 A heart with grief oppressed 

For having grieved my God ; 
. A troubled heart that cannot rest 
Till sprinkled with Christ's blood. 

3 Jesus ! on me bestow 

The penitent desire ; 
With true sincerity of woe 
My aching breast inspire. 

4 With softening pity look 

And melt my hardness down ; 
Strike with thy love's resistless stroke, 
And break this heart of stone. 

261 

1 How heavy is the night 

That hangs upon our eyes, 
Till Christ, with his reviving light, 
Over our souls arise ! 

2 Our guilty spirits dread 

To meet the wrath of heaven ; 
But in his righteousness arrayed, 
We see our sins forgiven. 

3 Unholy and impure 

Are all our thoughts and ways ; 
His hands infected nature cure 
With sanctifying grace. 
118 



4 The powers of hell agree 

To hold our souls in vain ; 
He sets the sons of bondage free, 
And breaks the cursed chain. 

5 Lord ! we adore thy ways 

To bring us near to God, 
Thy sovereign power, thy healing grace 
And thine atoning blood. 

262 

1 An ! how shall fallen man 

Be just before his God ? 
If he contend in righteousness, 
We fall beneath his rod. 

2 If he our ways should mark 

With strict inquiring eyes. 
Could we, for one of thousand faults, 
A just excuse devise ? 

3 All-seeing, powerful God ! 

Who can with thee contend ? 
Or who that tries the unequal strife 
Shall prosper in the end ? 

4 The mountains in thy%'rath. 

Their ancient seats forsake ; 
The trembling earth deserts her place, 
Her rooted pillars shake. 

5 Ah ! how shall guilty man 

Contend with such a God ? 
None— none can meet him and escape, 
But through the Saviour's blood.

1 Dear Saviour! we are thine 

By everlasting bands ! 
Our names, our hearts, we would resign, 
Our souls, into th)^ hands. 

2 To thee we still would cleave 

With ever-growing zeal ; 
If millions tempt us Christ to leave, 
Oh, let them ne'er prevail. 

3 Thy Spirit shall unite 

Our souls to thee, our head. 
Shall form in us thine image bright. 
That we thy paths may tread. 

4 Death may ou^ouls divide 

From these abodes of clay, 
But love shall keep us near thy side 
Through all the gloomy way. 

5 Since Christ and we are one. 

Why should we doubt and fear ? 
If he in heaven hath fixed his throne. 
He'll fix his members there 

264 

1 My spirit on thy care, 

Blest Saviour, I recline ; 
Thou wilt not leave me to despair. 
For thou art love divine. 

2 In thee I place my trust, 

On thee I calmly rest ; 



I know thee good, I know thee just, 
And count thy choice the best. 

3 Whate'er events betide. 

Thy will they all perform ; 
Safe in thy breast my head I hide, 
Nor fear the coming storm. 

4 Let good or ill befall, 

It must be good for me ; 
Secure of having thee in all, 
Of having all in thee. 

265 

1 Jesus ! I live to thee, 

The loveliest and best ; 
My life in thee, thy life in me, 
In thy blest love I rest. 

2 Jesus ! I die to thee 

Whenever death shall come ; 
To die in thee is life to me 
In my eternal home. 

3 Whether to live or die, 

I know not which is best ; 
To live in thee is bliss to me, 
To die is endless rest. 

4 Living or dying, Lord ! 

I ask but to be thine ; 
My life in thee, thy life in me. 
Makes heaven for ever mine.

1 The Lord my Shepherd is, 

I shall be well supplied ; 
Since he is mine and I am his, 
What can I want beside ? 

2 He leads me to the place 

Where heavenly pasture grows, 
Where living waters gently pass. 
And full salvation flows. 

3 If e'er I go astray, 

He doth my soul reclaim, 
And guides me in his own right way, 
For his most holy name.

I cannot yield to fear; 
Though I should walk through death's dark 
My Shepherd's with me there. [shade,

Thou dost ray table spread ;

Nor from thy house will I remove, 

Nor cease to speak thy praise.

And sha?. our cheeks be dry ?

The wondering angels see ; 
Be thou astonished, my soul !

In heaven alone no sin is found ; 
There is no weeping there.

I gaze upon the blood, 
I see the mighty sacrifice. 
And I have peace with God. 

2 'Tis everlasting peace. 

Sure as Jehovah's name ; 
'Tis stable as his steadfast throne, 
For evermore the same. 

3 The clouds may go and come, 

And storms may sweep my sky ; 
This blood-sealed friendship changes not, 
The cross is ever nigh. 

4 I change — he changes not ; 

The Christ can never die ; 
His love, not mine, the resting-place, 
His truth not mine, the tie. 

5 I know he liveth now 

At God's right hand above ; 
I know the throne on which he sits ; 
I know his truth and love.

He tends his blood-bought fold ; 

He stoops, though throned in highest state. 
The feeblest to uphold. 



3 He hears their softest plaint ; 
He sees them when they roam 
And if his meanest lamb should 
His bosom bears it home.

4 Kind Shepherd of the sheep, 
A weakly flock are we, 
And snares and foes are nigh ; but keep 
The lambs who look to thee.

1 I BLESS the Christ of God ; 

I rest on love divine ; 
And with unfaltering lip and heart 
I call this Saviour mine. 

2 His cross dispels each doubt ; 

I bury in his tomb 
Each thought of unbelief and fear, 
Each lingering shade of gloom. 

3 I praise the God of grace ; 

I trust his truth and might ; 
He calls me his, I call him mine. 
My God, my joy, my light. 

4 'Tis he who saveth me. 

And freely pardon gives ! 
I love because he loveth me, 
I live because he lives. 

5 My life with him is hid. 

My death has passed away, 
My clouds have melted into light, 
My midnight into day.

1 Dear Lord and Master mine ! 

Thy happy servant see : 
My Conqueror ! with what joy divine 
Thy captive clings to thee I 

2 I love thy yoke to wear, 

To feel thy gracious bands, 

Sweetly restrained by thy care 

And happy in thy hands. 

3 No bar would I remove ; 

No bond would I unbind ; 
Within the limits of thy love 
Full liberty I find. 

4 1 would not walk alone, 

But still with thee, my God, 
At every step my blindness own, 
And ask of thee the road. 

5 The weakness I enjoy 

That casts me on thy breast : 
The conflicts that thy strength employ 
Make me divinely blest. 

8 Dear Lord and Master mine ! 
Still keep thy servant true ; 
My Guardian and my Guide divine ! 
Bring, bring thy pilgrim through. 

7 My Conqueror and my King I 
Still keep me in thy train : 
And with thee thy glad captive bring 
When thou return'st to reign. 
122 



273 



1 Blessed be thy love, dear Lord ! 

That taught us this sweet way, 
Only to love thee for thyself, 
And for that love obey. 

2 thou our souls' chief Hope 1 

We to thy mercy fly ; 
Where'er we are thou canst protect, 
Whate'er we need, supply. 

3 Whether we sleep or wake, 

To thee we both resign ; 
By night we see, as well as day, 
If thy light on us shine. 

4 Whether we live or die, 

Both we submit to thee ; 
In death we live, as well as life, 
If thine in death we be. 



274 



1 In every trying hour 

My soul to Jesus flies : 
I trust in his almighty power 
When swelling billows rise. 

2 His comforts bear me up ; 

I trust a faithful God ; 
The sure foundation of my hope 
Is in my Saviour's blood. 

3 Loud hallelujahs sing 

To our Redeemer's name ; 

In joy or sorrow, life or death. 

His love is still the same.

1 Ye servants of the Lord, 

Each in his office wait, 
Observant of his heavenly word. 
And watchful at his gate. 

2 Let all your lamps be bright, 

And trim the golden flame ; 
Gird up your loins as in his sight, 
For awful is his name. 

3 Watch ! 'tis your Lord's command ; 

And while we speak he's near : 
Mark the first signal of his hand, 
And ready all appear. 

4 Oh, happy servant he 

In such a posture found ! 
He shall his Lord with rapture see. 
And be with honor crowned. 



276 



1 We give thee but thine own, 

Whate'er the gift may be ; 

All that we have is thine alone, 

A trust, Lord ! from thee. 

2 Oh, hearts are bruised and dead. 

And homes are bare and cold, 
And lambs for whom the Saviour bled 
Are straying from the fold. 

3 To comfort and to bless. 

To find a balm for woe. 
To tend the lone and fatherless, 
Is angels' work below. 



4 The captive to release, 

To God the lost to bring, 
To teach the way of life and peace, 
It is a Christ-like thing. 

5 And we believe thy word. 

Though dim our faith may be ; 
Whate'er for thine we do, Lord I 
We do it unto thee. 

277 

1 Oh, what, if we are Christ's, 

Is earthly shame or loss ? 
Bright shall the crown of glory be 
When we have borne the cross. 

2 Keen was the trial once. 

Bitter the cup of woe, 
When martyred saints, baptized in blood. 
Christ's sufierings shared below. 

3 Bright is their glory now, 

Boundless their joy above. 
Where, on the bosom of their God, 
They rest in perfect love. 

4 Lord ! may that grace be ours. 

Like them, in faith, to bear 
All that of sorrow, grief or pain 
May be our portion here. 

5 Enough if thou at last 

The word of blessing give, 
And let us rest beneath thy feet, 
Where saints and angels live.

When shall I find my willing heart 

Ail taken up by thee ? 
I thirst and faint and die to prove 
The greatness of redeeming love — 

The love of Christ to me.

Its riches are unsearchable ; 

The first-born sons of light 
Desire in vain its depths to see ; 
They cannot reach the mystery, 

The length and breadth and height,

Oh, that it now were shed abroad 

In this poor stony heart !

Be mine this better part. 

Oh, that I could for ever sit 
With Mary at the Master's feet ! 

Be this my happy choice ; 
My only care, delight and bliss, 
My joy, my heaven on earth be this, 

To hear the Bridegroom's voice !

1 Awaked by Sinai's awful sound, 
My soul in bonds of guilt I found, 

And knew not where to go ; 
Eternal truth did loud proclaim, 
"The sinner must be born again," 

Or sink to endless woe. 

2 When to the law I trembling fled, 
It poured its curses on my head, 

I no relief could find ; 
This fearful truth increased my pain, 
" The sinner must be born again," 

And whelmed my tortured mind. 

3 Again did Sinai's thunders roll, 
And guilt lay heav>" on my soul, 

A vast oppressive load ; 
Alas ! I read and saw it plain, 
" The sinner must be born again," 

Or drink the wrath of God. 

4 The saints I heard with rapture tell 
How Jesus conquered death and hell. 

And broke the fowler's snare ; 
Yet when I found this tnith remain, 
i " The sinner must be born again," 
: I sunk in deep despair. 

But while I thus in anguish lay 
The gracious Saviour passed this way, 
And felt his pity move ; 



I i I 



1 — r 



The sinner by his justice slain 

Now by his grace is born again, 

And sings redeeming love. 



281 



1 THOU that hear'st the prayer of faith, 
Wilt thou not save a soul from death 

That casts itself on thee ? 
I have no refuge of my own, 
But fly to what my Lord has done 

And suflfered once for me. 

2 Slain in the guilty- sinner's stead, 
His spotless righteousness I plead, 

And his availing blood ; 
Thy merit, Lord, my robe shall be, 
Thy merit shall atone for me. 

And bring me near to God. 

3 Then snatch me from eternal death. 
The spirit of adoption breathe, 

His consolation send : 
By him some word of life impart, 
And sweetly whisper to my heart, 

" Thy Maker is thy Friend." 

4 The king of terrors then would be 
A welcome messenger to me, 

That bids me come away ; 
Unclogg'd by earth or earthly things, 
I'd mount upon his sable wings 

To everlasting day.

1 When gathering clouds around I view, 
And days are dark and friends are few, 
On him I lean who not in vain 
Experienced every human pain ; 

He sees my wants, allays my fears, 
And counts and treasures up my tears. 

2 If aught should tempt my soul to stray 
From heavenly wisdom's narrow way, 
To fly the good I would pursue, 

Or do the sin I would not do, 

Still, he who felt temptation's power 

Shall guard me in that dangerous hour. 

3 If wounded love my bosom swell. 
Deceived by those I prized too well. 
He shall his pitying aid bestow 
AVho felt on earth severer woe. 

At once betrayed, denied or fled 
By those who shared his daily bread. 

4 When sorrowing o'er some stone I bend 
Which covers what was once a friend, 
And from his voice, his hand, his smile. 
Divides me for a little while. 

Thou, Saviour ! mark'st the tears I shed, 
For thou didst weep o'er I^zarus dead.

5 And oh, when I have safely passed 
Through everj'^ conflict but the last. 
Still, still unchanging watch beside 
My painful bed, for thou hast died : 
Then point to realms of cloudless day, 
And wipe the latest tear away.

Thou all-suflicient love divine. 
My help and refuge from my foes. 

Secure I am if thou art mine ! 
And, lo ! from sin and grief and shame 
I hide me, Jesus ! in thy name. 

2 Jesus I my all in all thou art. 

My rest in toil, my ease in pain. 
The healing of my broken heart, 

In strife my peace, in loss my gain, 
My smile beneath the tyrant's frown, 
In shame my glory and my crown ; 

3 In want my plentiful supply, 

In weakness my almighty power. 
In bonds my perfect liberty. 

My light in Satan's darkest hour ; 
No trouble can my soul appal : 
Thou art my life, my heaven, my al «

1 The Lord my pasture shall prepare, 
And feed me with a shepherd's care ; 
His presence shall my wants supply, 
And guard me with a watchful eye ; 
My noonday walks he shall attend. 
And all my midnight hours defend. 

2 When on the sultry glebe I faint. 
Or on the thirsty mountain pant. 
To fertile vales and dewy meads 
My weary, wandering steps he leads. 
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow. 
Amid the verdant landscape flow. 

3 Though in the paths of death I tread, 
With gloomy horrors overspread. 
My steadfast heart shall fear no ill, 
For thou, O Lord ! art with me still ; 
Thy friendly crook shall give me aid, 
And guide me through the dreadful shade. 

285 

1 Forth from the dark and stormy sky, 
Loid ! to thine altar's shade we fly ; 
Forth from the world, its hope and fear. 
Saviour ! we seek thy shelter here ; 
Weary and weak, thy grace we pray ; 
Turn not, Lord ! thy guests away. 

2 Long have we roamed in want and pain, 
Long have we sought thy rest in vain ; 
'Wildered in doubt, in darkness lost. 
Long have our souls been tempest-tossed ; 



Low at thy feet our sins we lay ; 
Turn not, Lord ! thy guests away. 

286 

1 As OFT with worn and weary feet. 
We tread earth's rugged valley o'er. 

The thought — how comforting and sweet I 
Christ trod this very path before ! 
Our wants and weaknesses he knows 
From life's first dawning to its close. 

2 Do sickness, feebleness or pain 
Or sorrow in our path appear, 
The recollection will remain. 
More deeply did he sufler here : 
His life, how truly sad and brief, 
Filled up with sufiering and with grief I 

3 If Satan tempt our hearts to stray, 
And whisper evil things within. 
So did he in the desert way 

Assail our Lord with thoughts of sin, 
When worn and in a feeble hour 
The temnter came with all his power. 

4 Just such as I, this earth he trod, 
With every human ill but sin ; 
And though indeed the very God, 
As I am now, so he has been. 
My God, my Saviour, look on me 
With pity, love and sympathy.

Can my wretched heart rejoice.

That when death shall visit me,

And when wounded healed thy wound : 
Sought thee wandering, set thee right, 
Turned thy darkness into light. 

3 " Can a woman's tender care 
Cease toward the child she bare ? 
Yes, she may forgetful be, 

Yet will I remember thee. 

4 " Mine is an unchanging love, 
Higher than the heights above. 
Deeper than the depths beneath, 
Free and faithful, strong as death. 

5 " Thou shalt see my glory soon. 
When the work of grace is done ; 
Partner of my throne shalt be ; 
Say, poor sinner ! lovest thou me ?" 

6 Lord ! it is my chief complaint 
That my love is weak and faint; 
Yet I love thee, and adore ; 
Oh, for grace to luve thee more !

Having known it " Christ to live," 

Let me know it " gain to die."

1 'Tis a point I long to know. 

Oft it causes anxious thought ! 
Do I love the Lord or no ? 
Am I his or am I not ? 

2 If I love, why am I thus ? 

Why this dull and lifeless frame ? 
Hardly, sure, can they be worse 
Who have never heard his name.

Prayer a task and burden prove. 
Every trifle give me pain,

Should I grieve for what I feel

But I weary am, I know. 
And the weary long for rest. 

3 Burdened with a load of sin. 

Harassed with tormenting doubt. 
Hourly conflicts from within, 
Hourly crosses from without, 

4 All my little strength is gone, 

Sink I must without supply ; 
Sure upon the earth is none 
Can more weary be than I. 

5 In the ark the weary dove 

Found a welcome resting-place ; 
Thus my spirit longs to prove 
Rest in Christ, the Ark of grace. 

6 Tempest-tossed I long have been, 

And the flood increases fast ; 
Open, Lord ! and take me in, 
Till the storm be overpast.

5 Now incline me to repent, 
Let me now my sins lament ; 
Now my foul revolt deplore, 
Weep, believe and sin no more. 

300 

1 Jesus ! full of truth and love, 

We thy kindest call obey ; 
Faithful let thy mercies prove ; 
Take our load of guilt away. 

2 Weary of this war within. 

Weary of this endless strife, 
Weary of ourselves and sin, 
Weary of a wretched life ; 

3 Burdened with a world of grief. 

Burdened with our sinful load. 
Burdened with this unbelief. 
Burdened with the wrath of God ; — 

4 Lo, we come to thee for ease, 

True and gracious as thou art: 
Now our weary souls release. 
Write forgiveness on our heart.

1 Chief of sinners though I be, 
Jesus shed his blood for me ; 
Died that I might live on high, 
Lived that I might never die ; 
As the branch is to the vine, 

I am his and he is mine. 

2 Oh, the height of Jesus' love ! 
Higher than the heavens above. 
Deeper than the depths of sea, 
Lasting as eternity ; 

Love that found me — wondrous thought !- 
Found me when I sought him not. 

3 Jesus only can impart 

Balm to heal the smitten heart; 
Peace that flows from sins forgiven, 
Joy that lifts the soul to heaven ; 



DIL 




S^ 



Faith and hope to walk with God, 
In the way that Enoch trod. 

4 Chief of sinners though I be, 
Christ is all in all to me ; 

All my wants to him are known, 
All my sorrows are his own ; 
Safe with him from earthly strife, 
He sustains the hidden life. 

5 O my Saviour ! help afford 
By thy Spirit and thy word ! 

When my wayward heart would stray, 
Keep me in the narrow way ; 
Grace in time of need supply. 
While I live and when I die.

1 Jesus, Lamb of God ! for me, 

Thou, the Lord of life, didst die ; 
Whither— whither, but to thee. 

Can a trembling sinner fly ? 
Death's dark waters o'er me roll, 
Save, oh, save my sinking soul I 

2 Never bowed a martyred head 

Weighed with equal sorrow down 
Never blood so rich was shed, 

Never king wore such a crown ; 
To thy cross and sacrifice 
Faith now lifts her tearful eyes. 

3 All my soul, by love subdued, 

Melts in deep contrition there ; 
By thy mighty grace renewed. 

New-born hope forbids despair ; 
Lord ! thou canst my guilt forgive ; 
Thou hast bid me look and live. 

4 While with broken heart I kneel, 

Sinks the inward storm to rest ; 
Life, immortal life, I feel 
Kindled in my throbbing breast ; 
134 



Thine, for ever thine, I am ; 
Glory to the bleeding Lamb ! 

303 

1 Blessed Saviour I thee I love 
All my other joys above ; 
All ray hopes in thee abide — 
Thou my Hope, and naught beside ; 
Ever let my glory be 

Only, only, only thee. 

2 Once again beside the cross, 
All my gain I count but loss ; 
Earthly pleasures fade away. 
Clouds they are that hide my day ; 
Hence, vain shadows ! let me see 
Jesus crucified for me. 

3 Blessed Saviour ! thine am I, 
Thine to live and thine to die ; 
Height or depth or creature power 
Ne'er shall hide my Saviour more ; 
Ever shall my glory be 

Only, only, only thee.

Let me hide myself in thee ; 
Let the water and the blood 
From thy riven side which flowed, 
Be of sin the double cure ; 
Cleanse me from its guilt and power. 

2 Not the labors of my hands 
Can fulfill thy law's demands ; 
Could my zeal no respite know, 
Could my tears for ever flow, 
All for sin could not atone ; 
Thou must save, and thou alone. 

GETHSEMANE. 



3 Nothing in my hand I bring ; 
Simply to thy cross I cling ; 
Naked, come to thee for dress, 
Helpless, look to thee for grace, 
Foul, I to the fountain fly ; 
Wash me. Saviour ! or I die. 

4 Whilst I draw this fleeting breath. 
When my eyelids close in death. 
When I soar through worlds unknown, 
See thee on thy judgment throne, 
Rock of ages, cleft for me ! 

Let me hide myself in thee.

1 Jesus, lover of my soul ! 

Let iiie to thy bosom fly 
While the billows near me roll, 

While the tempest still is high ; 
Hide me, my Saviour, hide, 

Till the storm of life is past ; 
Safe into the haven guide, 

Oh, receive my soul at last. 

2 Other refuge have I none ; 

Hangs my helpless soul on thee 
Leave, ah ! leave me not alone. 

Still support and comfort me ; 
All my trust on thee is stayed, 

All my help from thee I bring ; 
Cover my defenceless head 

With the shadow of thy wing. 



Thou, Christ ! art all I want, 

More than all in thee I find ; 
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, 

Heal the sick and lead the blind ; 
Just and holy is thy name, 

I am all unrighteousness : 
False and full of sin I am. 

Thou art full of truth and grace. 

Plenteous grace with thee is found, 

Grace to cover all my sin ; 
Let the healing streams abound, 

Make and keep me pure within ; 
Thou of life the fountain art, 

Freely let me take of thee ; 
Spring thou up within my heart; 

Rise to all eternity.

1 Come, thou traveler unknown ! 

Whom still I hold, but cannot see, 
My company before is gone, 

And I am left alone with thee ; 
With thee all night I mean to stay, 
And wrestle till the break of day. 

2 I need not tell thee who I am ; 

My sin and misery declare ; 
Thyself hast call'd me by my name ; 

Look on thy hands and read it there ; 
But who, I ask thee, who art thou? 
Tell me thy name, and tell me now. 

^ In vain thou strugglest to get free ; 

I never will unloose my hold ! 
Art thou the Man that died for me? 

The secret of thy love unfold ; 
Wrestling, I will not let thee go, 
Till I thy name, thy nature, know. 

4 Wilt thou not yet to me reveal 
Thy nev, unutterable name? 
Tell me, 1 still beseech thee, tell ; 
To know it now resolved I am ; 
Wrestling, I will not let thee go. 
Till 1 1 ay name, thy nature, know. 
138 



1 Yield to me now, for I am weak, 
But confident in self-despair ; 
Speak to my heart, in blessings speak 
Be conquer'd by my instant prayer 
Speak, or thou never hence shalt mov 
And tell me if thy name be Love. 



e, 



2 'Tis Love ! 'tis Love ! thou die'dst for me ; 

I hear thy whisper in my heart ; 
The morning breaks, the shadows flee; 

Pure, universal Love thou art; 
To me, to all, thy bowels move — 
Thy nature and thy name is Love. 

3 My prayer hath power with God ; the grace 

Unspeakable I now receive ; 
Through faith I see thee face to face — 

I see thee face to face and live ! 
In vain I have not wept and strove ; 
Thy nature and thy name is Love. 

4 I know thee. Saviour ! who thou art — 

Jesus, the feeble sinner's Friend ; 
Nor wilt thou with the night depart, 

But stay and love me to the end ; 
Thy mercies never shall remove ; 
Thy nature and thy name is Love.

The Sun of righteousness on me 
Hath risen with healing in his wings ; 

Wither'd my nature's strength, from 
thee 
My soul its life and succor brings ; 

My help is all laid up above ; 

Thy nature and thy name is Love.

I halt, till life's short journey end ; 

ONIDO. 



All helplessness, all weakness, I 

On thee alone for strength depend ; 
Nor have I power from thee to move ; 
Thy nature and thy name is Love.

Hell, earth and sin with ease o'ercome ; 
I leap for joy, pursue my way, 

And as a bounding hart fly home, 
Through all eternity to prove 
Thy nature and tliy name is Love.

So shall I walk aright.

Is thine ; so let the way

End of faith, as its beginning 1 

Set our hearts at liberty.

Perfectly restored in thee ; 
Changed from glory into glory. 

Till in heaven we take our place. 
Till we cast our crowns before thee, 

Lost in wonder, love and praise.

Whither from the dread of dying 

But to him who ever lives?

That thou suffer'dst thus for me.

1 Jesus ! I my cross have taken, 

All to leave and follow thee ; 
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken, 

Thou from hence my all shalt be ; 
Perish, every fond ambition, 

All I 've sought or hoped or known. 
Yet how rich is my condition ! 

God and heaven are still my own ! 

2 Let the world despise and leave me, 

They have left my Saviour too ; 
Human hearts and looks deceive me — 

Thou art not like them untrue ; 
Oh, while thou dost smile upon me, 

God of wisdom, love and might ! 
Foes may hate and friends disown me, 

Show thy face, and all is bright. 

3 Man may trouble and distress me, 

'T will but drive me to thy breast ; 
Life with trials hard may press me. 

Heaven will bring me sweeter rest ; 
Oh, 't is not in grief to harm me 

While thy love is left to me ; 
Oh, 't were not in joy to charm me, 

Were that joy unmixed with thee. 



Go, then, earthly fame and treasure ! 

Come, disaster, scorn and pain ! 
In thy service pain is pleasure. 

With thy favor loss is gain. 
I have called thee, Abba, Father ! 

I have stayed my heart on thee ; 
Storms may howl, and clouds may gather, 

All must work for good to me. 

Soul, then know thy full salvation, 

Rise o'er sin and fear and care ; 
Joy to find in every station 

Something still to do or bear. 
Think what Spirit dwells within thee ; 

Think what Father's smiles are thine ; 
Think that Jesus died to win thee ; 

Child of heaven, canst thou repine? 

Haste thee on from grace to glory, 

Armed by faith and winged by prayer ; 
Heaven's eternal day 's before thee, 

God's own hand shall guide thee there ; 
Soon shall close thy earthly mission. 

Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days, 
Hope shall change to glad fruition. 

Faith to sight and prayer to praise.

Now, above all glory raised,

What a Friend we have above.

That blest moment I received him 

Filled my soul with joy and peace ;

DOXOLOGY. 

Praise the God of our salvation : 

Praise the Father's boundless love ; 
Praise the Lamb, our expiation ; 

Praise the Spirit from above ; 
Author of the new creation, 

Him by whom our spirits live ; 
Undivided adoration 

To the One Jehovah give.

1 Welcome, welcome, dear Redeemer ! 
Welcome to this heart of mine ; 
Lord ! I make a full surrender, 
Every power and thought be thine; 

Thine entirely. 
Through eternal ages thine. 



2 Known to all to be thy mansion, 
Earth and hell will disappear ; 
Or in vain attempt possession. 
When they find the Lord is near ; 

Shout, Zion ! 
Shout, ye saints ! the Lord is here.

1 The Lord is my Shepherd ; no want shall I 

know; 
I feed in green pastures ; safe folded I rest ; 
He leadeth my soul where the still waters 

flow, 
Restores me when wandering, redeems 

when oppressed. 

2 Through the valley and shadow of death 

though I stray, 
Since thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear ; 
Thy rod shall defend me, thy stafi" be my 

stay ; 
No harm can befall with my Comforter 

near. 

3 In the midst of affliction my table is spread ; 

With blessings unmeasured my cup run- 
neth o'er ; 
With perfume and oil thou anointest my 
head ; 
Oh, what shall I ask of thy providence 
more? 

4 Let goodness and mercy, ray bountiful God 1 

Still follow my steps till I meet thee above ; 
I seek, by the path which my forefathers trod 
Tlirough the land of their sojourn, thy 
kingdom of love. 



1 How firm a foundation, ye saints of the 

Lord, 
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word ! 
What more can he say than to you lie hath 

said. 
You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled ? 

2 When through fiery trials thy pathway shall 

lie. 
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply I 
The flame shall not hurt thee ; I only design 
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine. 

3 E'en down to old age all my people shall 

prove 
My sov'reign, eternal, unchangeable love ; 
And when hoary hairs shall their temples 

adorn, 
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be 

borne. 



4 The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose 
I will not, I will not desert to his foes ; 
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to 

shake, 
I '11 never, no, never, no, never, forsake.

1 Begone, unbelief, my Saviour is near, 
And for my relief he will surely appear ; 
By prayer let me wrestle, and he will per- 
form ; 

"With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the 
storm. 

2 Though dark be my way, thou, Lord ! art my 

guide ; 

'T is mine to obey, 't is thine to provide ; 

Though cisterns be broken and creatures all 
fail. 

The word thou hast spoken shall surely pre- 
vail. 

i! 3 Since all that I meet shall work for my good, 
' The bitter is sweet, the medicine food : 
! ' Though painful at present, 't will cease before 
j long, 

And then oh how pleasant the conqueror's 
1 song ! 

326 

1 I ONCE was a stranger to grace and to God ; 
I knew not my danger and felt not my load ; 
Though friends spoke in rapture of Christ on 

the tree, 
Jehovah, my Saviour, was nothing to me. 



2 When free grace awoke me by light from on 

high. 
Then legal fears shook me ; I trembled to die ; 
No refuge, no safety, in self could I see ; 
Jehovah ! thou only my Saviour must be. 

3 My terrors all vanished before the sweet 

name ; 
My guilty fears banished, with boldness I 

came 
To drink at the fountain life-giving and free ; 
Jehovah, my Saviour, is all things to me. 

4 Jehovah, the Lord, is my treasure and boast ; 
Jehovah, my Saviour, I ne'er can be lost; 
In thee I shall conquer by flood and by field, 
Jehovah my anchor, Jehovah my shield ! 

5 E'en treading the valley, the shadow of 

death, 
This watchword shall rally my falterir.g 

breath ; 
For while from life's fever my God sets me 

free, 
Jehovah, my Saviour, my death-song shall 

be!

1 Come, Jesus, Redeemer! abide thou with 

me, 
Come gladden my spirit, that waiteth for 

thee; 
Thy smile every shadow shall chase from 

my heart, 
And soothe every sorrow, though keen be 

the smart. 

2 Without thee but weakness, with thee I am 

strong ; 
By day thou shalt lead me, by night be my 

song; 
Though dangers surround me, I still every 

fear. 
Since thou, the Most Mighty, my Helper, art 

near. 

3 Thy love, oh how faithful! so tender, so 

pure; 
Thy promise, faith's anchor, how steadfast 
and sure 1

That love, like sweet sunshine, my cold 

heart can warm, 
That promise make steady my soul in the 

storm. 

Breathe, breathe on my spirit, oft ruffled, 
thy peace, 

From restless vain wishes bid thou my heart 
cease ; 

In thee all its longings henceforward shall 
end. 

Till glad to thy presence my soul shall as- 
cend. 

^ 

Oh then, blessed Jesus! who once for me 
died. 

Made clean in the fountain that gushed from j 
thy side, ■ 

I shall see thy full glory, thy face shall be- 
hold. 

And praise thee for ever with raptures un- 
told.

Jesus ! let thy pitying eye 

Call back a wandering sheep; 
False to thee, like Peter, I 

Would ftxin like Peter weep. 
Let me be by grace restored ; 

On me be all long-suffering shown ; 
Turn and look upon me, Lord ! 

And break my heart of stone. 

2 Saviour, Prince ! enthroned above, 

Repentance to impart. 
Give me, through thy dying love. 

The humble, contrite heart ; 
Give what I have long implored, 

A portion of thy grief unknown ; 
Turn and look upon me. Lord ! 

And break my heart of stone. 

3 See me. Saviour ! from above, 

Nor suffer me to die ; 
]jife and happiness and love 

Drop from thy gracious eye ; 
Speak the reconciling word. 

And let thy mercy melt me down ; 
Turn and look upon me. Lord ! 

And bre.ak my heart of stone.

1 By n\e, my Saviour ! stand 
In every trying hour; 
Guard me with thine outstretch'd hand 
And hold me with thy power ; 
160 



Mindful of thy faithful word. 
Thine all-sufficient grace bestow ; 

Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord ! 
And never let me go. 

2 Give me, Lord! a holy fear, 

And fix it in my heart, 
That I may from evil near 

With watchful care depart ; 
Still thy timely help afford. 

And all thy loving-kindness show ; 
Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord ! 

And never let me go. 

3 Let me never leave thy breast. 

From thee, my Saviour ! stray ; 
Thou art my support and rest. 

My true and living way ; 
My exceeding great reward. 

In heaven above and earth below ; 
Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord ! 

And never let me go. 

4 Never let me go till I, 

Upborne on wings of love. 
Gain the regions of the sky, 

And take my seat above ; 
Thou hast passed thy gracious word 

That thou wilt bring me safely through ; 
Thou wilt, therefore, keep me, Lord I 

Nor ever let me go.

I LAY my sins on Jesus, 

The spotless Lamb of God ; 
He bears them all and frees us 

From the accursed load ; 
I bring my guilt to Jesus, 

To wash my crimson stains 
White in his blood most precious, 

Till not a spot remains. 

2 I lay my wants on Jesus ; 

All fullness dwells in him ; 
He heals all my diseases, 

He doth my soul redeem ; 
I lay my griefs on Jesus, 

My burdens and my cares ; 
He from them all releases. 

He all my sorrows shares. 

3 I long to be like Jesus, 

Meek, loving, lowly, mild ; 
I long to be like Jesus, 

The Father's holy child ; 
I long to be -vvdth Jesus 

Amid the heavenly throng, 
To sing, with saints, his praises, 

To learn the angels' song. 



332 

1 In heavenly love abiding, 

No change my heart shall fear, 
And safe is such confiding. 

For nothing changes here ; 
The storm may roar without me, 

My heart may low be laid, 
But God is round about me. 

And can I be dismayed ? 

2 Wherever he may guide me, 

No want shall turn me back ; 
My Shepherd is beside me, 

And nothing can I lack ; 
His wisdom ever waketh. 

His sight is never dim ; 
He knows the way he taketh, 

And I will walk with him. 

3 Green pastures are before me 

Which yet I have not seen ; 
Bright skies will soon be o'er me 

Where darkest clouds have been 
My hope I cannot measure, 

My path in life is free : 
My Saviour has my treasure, 

And he will walk with me.

1 More love to thee, Christ ! 

More love to thee ! 
Hear thou the prayer I make 

On bended knee ; 
This is my earnest plea : 
More love, O Christ ! to thee, 

More love to thee ! 

2 Once earthly joy I craved. 

Sought peace and rest ; 
Now thee alone I seek — 

Give what is best ; 
This all my prayer shall be : 
More love, Christ ! to thee, 

More love to thee ! 

3 Let sorrow do its work. 

Send grief and pain ; 
Sweet are thy messengers. 

Sweet their refrain. 
When they can sing with mo, 
More love, O Christ ! to thee, 

More love to thee ! 

4 Then shall my latest breath 

Whisper thy praise ; 
This be the parting cry 

My heart shall raise. 
This still its prayer shall be : 
More love, Christ ! to thee, 

More love to thee!

Guided by thee,

Seeing not yet the hand 

That leadeth me ; 
Hushed be my heart and still, 
Fear I no further ill. 
Only to meet thy will 

My will shall be. 

2 Riven the rock for me. 

Thirst to relieve, 
Manna from heaven falls 

Fresh every eve ; 
Never a want severe 
Causeth my eye a tear. 
But thou art whispering near, 

" Only believe !" 

3 Often to Marah's brink 

Have I been brought ; 
Shrinking the cup to drink. 

Help I have sought ; 
And with the prayer's ascent 
Jesus the branch has rent ; 
Quickly relief he sent, 

Sweetening the draught. 

4 Saviour ! I long to walk 

Closer with thee ; 
Led by thy guiding hand 

Ever to be ; 
Constantly near thy side, 
Quickened and purified. 
Living for him who died 

Freely for me !

Thou Lamb of Calvary,

Now hear me while I pray. 
Take all my guilt away. 
Oh, let me, from this day, 

Be wholly thine.

Strength to my fainting heart,

Pure, warm and changeless be,

And griefs around me spread, 

Be thou my guide ; 
Bid darkness turn to day. 
Wipe sorrow's tears away, 
Nor let me ever stray 

From thee aside. 

4 WJien ends life's transient dream, 
When death's cold, sullen stream 

Shall o'er me roll, 
Blest Saviour ! then, in love. 
Fear and distrust remove ; 
Oh, bear me safe above, 

A ransomed soul.

1 Saviour ! I look to thee, 
Be not thou far from me 

Mid storms that lower ; 
On me thy care bestow. 
Thy loving-kindness show. 
Thine arms around me throw 

This trying hour. 

2 Saviour ! I look to thee 
Feeble as infancy. 

Gird up my heart ; 
Author of life and light. 
Thou hast an arm of might, 
Thine is the sovereign right, 

Thy strength impart. 

3 Saviour, I look to thee. 
Let me thy fullness see, 

Save me from fear ; 
While at thy cross I kneel. 
All my backslidings heal, 
And a full pardon seal, 

My soul to cheer. 

4 Saviour ! I look to thee. 
Thine shall the glory be, 

Hearer of prayer ; 
Thou art my only aid. 
On thee my soul is stayed, 
Naught can my heart invade 

While thou art near.

1 To Jesus, the crown of my hope, 

My soul is in haste to be gone ; 
Oh, bear me, ye cherubim ! up. 

And waft me away to his throne ; 
My Saviour whom absent I love, 

"Whom, not having seen, I adore, 
Whose name is exalted above 

All glory, dominion and power, 

2 Dissolve thou these bands that detain 

My soul from her portion in thee ; 
Ah ! strike off this adamant chain, 

And make me eternally free. 
When that happy era begins. 

When arrayed in thy glories I shine, 
Nor grieve any more by my sins 

The bosom on which I recline, 

3 Oh, then shall the veil be removed. 

And round me thy brightness be poured 
I shall meet him whom absent I loved, 

I shall see whom unseen I adored ; 
And then nevermore shall the fears, 

The trials, temptations and woes. 
Which darken this valley of tears, 

Intrude on my blissful repose. 
166 



341 

1 Ye angels who stand round the throne 

And view my Immanuel's face. 
In rapturous songs make him known. 

Tune all your soft harps to his praise ; 
He formed you the spirits you are. 

So happy, so noble, so good ; 
When others sunk down in despair. 

Confirmed by his power, you stood. 

2 Ye saints who stand nearer than they. 

And cast your bright crowns at his feet, 
His grace and his glory display. 

And all his rich mercy repeat ; 
He snatched you from hell and the grave, 

He ransomed from death and despair, 
For you he was mighty to save, 

Almighty to bring you safe there. 

3 Oh, when will the period appear 

When I shall unite in your song ? 
I'm weary of lingering here, 

And I to your Saviour belong; 
I want, oh, I want to be there, 

Where sorrow and sin bid adieu, 
Your joy and your friendship to share, 

To wonder and worship with you.

Till our rest be won :

Still support, console, protect us, 

Till we safely stand 

In our fatherland.

1 The spacious firmament on liigh, 
With all the blue ethereal sky, 

And spangled heav'ns, a shining frame, 

Their great original proclaim. 

Th' unwearied sun, from day to day. 

Does his Creator's powers display, 

And publishes to every land 

The work of an almighty Hand. 

2 Soon as the evening shades prevail 
The moon takes up the wondrous tale. 
And nightly to the listening earth 
"Repeats the story of her birth ; 

158 



Whilst all the stars that round her burn, 
And all the planets in their turn, 
Confirm the tidings as they roll, 
And spread the truth from pole to pole. 

What though in solemn silence all 
Move round the dark terrestrial ball? 
What though no real voice nor sound 
Amidst their radiant orbs be found? 
In reason's ear they all rejoice. 
And utter forth a glorious voice, 
For ever singing as they shine, 
" The Hand that made us is divine."

1 High in the heavens, eternal God ! 

Thy goodness in full glory shines ; 
Thy truth shall break through every cloud 
That veils and darkens thy designs. 

2 For ever firm thy justice stands, 

As mountains their foundations keep ; 
Wise are the wonders of thy hands, 
Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 

3 My God ! how excellent thy grace. 

Whence all our hope and comfort spring ! 
The sons of Adam, in distress, 
Fly to the shadow of thy wing. 

4 From the provisions of thy house 

We shall be fed with sweet repast ; 
There mercy like a river flows. 
And brings salvation to our taste. 

5 Life, like a fountain, rich and free. 

Springs from the presence of the Lord, 
And in thy light our souls shall see 
The glories promised in thy word. 

346 

1 Jehovah reigns: he dwells in light, 
Girded with majesty and might ; 
The world, created by his hands. 
Still on its first foundation stands. 

2 But ere this spacious world was made 
Or had its first foundations laid, 
Thy throne eternal ages stood. 
Thyself, the ever-living God. 



3 Like floods the angry nations rise. 
And aim their rage against the skies ; 
Vain floods, that aim their rage so high I 
At thy rebuke the billows die. 

4 For ever shall thy throne endure. 
Thy promise stands for ever sure. 
And everlasting holiness 
Becomes the dwellings of thy grace. 

347 

1 L^p to the hills I lift mine eyes — 
Th' eternal hills beyond the skies ; 
Thence all her help my soul derives. 
There my almighty Refuge lives. 

2 He lives — the everlasting God 

That built the world, that spread the flood ; 
The heavens with all their hosts he made, 
And the dark regions of the dead. 

3 He guides our feet, he guards our way ; 
His morning smiles bless all the day ; 
He spreads the evening veil, and keeps 
The silent hours while Israel sleeps. 

4 Israel, a name di^-inely blest. 
May rise secure, securely rest ; 
Thy holy Guardian's wakeful eyes 
Admit no slumber nor surprise. 

5 Should earth and hell with malice oiim. 
Still thou shalt go, and still return. 
Safe in the Lord : his heavenly care 
Defends thy life from every snare.

1 The Lord is King ! lift up thy voice, 

earth ! and, all ye heavens ! rejoice ; 
From world to world the joy shall ring : 
The Lord omnipotent is King ! 

2 The Lord is King ! who then shall dare 
Resist his will, distrust his care ? 

Holy and true are all his ways ; 
Let every creature speak his praise. 

3 The Lord is King ! exalt your strains. 

Ye saints ! your God, your Father, reigns ; 
One Lord, one empire, all secures ; 
He reigns, and life and death are yours. 

♦ Oh, when his wisdom can mistake. 
His might decay, his love forsake. 
Then may his children cease to sing. 
The Lord omnipotent is King ! 

349 

1 Jehovah reigns! his throne is high. 
His robes are light and majesty ; 

His glory shines with beams so bright 
No mortal can sustain the sight. 

2 His terrors keep the world in awe ; 
His justice guards his holy law ; 
His love reveals a smiling face ; 

His truth and promise seal the grace. 

3 Through all his works his wisdom shines, 
A-nd baffles Satan's deep designs ; 

His power is sovereign to fulfill 
The noblest counsels of his will. 
160 



4 And will this glorious Lord descend 
To be my father and my friend ? 
Then let my songs with angels join ; 
Heaven is secure if God be mine. 

350 

1 The heavens declare thy glory, Lord I 

In every star thy wisdom shines ; 

But when our eyes behold thy word, 

We read thy nanae in fairer lines. 

2 The rolling sun, the changing light 

And nights and days thy power confess. 
But the blest volume thou hast writ 
Reveals thy justice and thy grace. 

3 Sun, moon and stars convey thy praise 

Round the whole earth, and never stand ; 
So, when thy truth began its race, 
It touched and glanced on every land. 

4 Nor shall thy spreading gospel rest 

Till through the world thy truth has run, 
Till Christ has all the nations blest 
That see the light or feel the sun. 

5 Great Sun of righteousness ! arise ; 

Bless the dark world with heavenly light 
Thy gospel makes the simple wise, 
Thy laws are pure, thy judgments right 

6 Thy noblest wonders here we view 

In souls renewed and sins forgiven ; 
Lord ! cleanse my sins, my soul renew. 
And make thy word my guide to heaven.

1 Kingdoms and thrones to God belong ; 
Crown him, ye nations ! in your song ; 
His wondrous names and powers rehearse ; 
His honors shall enrich your verse. 

2 He rides, and thunders through the sky ; 
His name, Jehovah, sounds on high ; 
Sing to his name, ye sons of grace ! 

Ye saints ! rejoice before his face. 

3 He breaks the captive's heavy chain, 
And pris'ners see the light again ; 
But rebels who dispute his will 

Shall dwell in chains and darkness stilL 

4 Proclaim him King, pronounce him blest ; 
He 's your defence, your joy, your rest ; 
When terrors rise and nations faint, 

God is the strength of every saint. 

352 

i Thee we adore, eternal Lord ! 
We praise thy name with one accord ; 
Thy saints who here thy goodness see 
Through all the world do worship thee. 

2 To thee aloud all angels cry, 

And ceaseless raise their songs on high, 

Both cherubim and seraphim. 

The heavens and all the powers therein. 

3 The apostles join the glorious throng ; 

The prophets swell the immortal song ; 
11 



The martyrs' noble army raise 
Eternal anthems to thy praise. 

4 Thee, holy, holy, holy King ! 
Thee, Lord God of hosts ! they sing • 
Thus earth below and heaven above 
Resound thy glory and thy love. 

353 

1 Lord of all being ! throned afar. 
Thy glory flames from sun and star ; 
Centre and soul of everj' sphere, 
Yet to each loving heart how near I 

2 Sun of our life I thy quickening ray 
Sheds on our path the glow of day ; 
Star of our hope ! thy softened light 
Cheers the long watches of the night. 

3 Our midnight is thy smile withdrawn ; 
Our noontide is thy gracious dawn ; 
Our rainbow arch thy mercy's sign ; 
All save the clouds of sin are thine. 

4 Lord of all life ! below, above, 

Whose light is truth, whose warmth is love, 
Before thy ever-blazing throne 
We ask no lustre of our own. 

5 Grant us thy truth to make us free. 

And kindling hearts that burn for thee, 

Till all thy loving altars claim 

One holy light, one heavenly flame.

1 Lord! thou hast searched and seen me 

through ; 
Thine eye commands with piercing view 
My rising and my resting hours, 
My heart and flesh with all their powers. 

2 My thoughts before they are my own 
Are to my God distinctly known ; 
He knows the words I mean to speak 
Ere from my opening lips they break. 

3 Within thy circling power I stand ; 
On every side I find thy hand ; 
Awake, asleep, at home, abroad, 

I am surrounded still with God. 

4 Amazing knowledge, vast and great ! 
What large extent! what lofty height! 
My soul, with all the powers I boast, 
Is in the boundless prospect lost. 

5 OK, may these thoughts possess my breast 
Where'er I rove, where'er I rest. 

Nor let my weaker passions dare 
Consent to sin, for God is there. 

355 

1 Awake, my tongue! thy tribute bring 
To lii.m who gave thee power to sing ; 
Praise him who is all praise above. 
The source of light and truth and love. 

2 How vast his knowledge I how profound ! 

A depth where all our thoughts are drowned ; 
The stars he numbers, and their names 
He gives to all these heavenly flames. 
162 



3 Through each bright world above behold 
Ten thousand thousand charms unfold : 
Earth, air and mighty seas combine 

To speak his wisdom all divine. 

4 But in redemption, oh what grace ! 

Its wonders, oh what thought can trace ? 
Here wisdom shines for ever bright ; 
Praise him, my soul ! with sweet delight. 

356 

1 Oh, dreadful glory that doth make 

Thick darkness round the heavenly throne, 
Through which no angel eye may break, 
Wherein the Lord doth dwell alone ! 

2 What secret place, what distant star, 

Is like, dread Lord ! to thine abode ? 
Why dwellest thou from us so far? 
We yearn for thee, thou hidden God. 

3 Vain searchers ! but we need not mourn, 

We need not stretch our weary wings ; 
Thou meetest us where'er we turn ; 
Thou beamest. Lord ! from all bright things. 

4 But sweetest. Lord ! dost thou appear 

In the dear Saviour's smiling fatie ; 
The heavenly majesty draws near, 
And offers us its kind embrace. 

5 To us, vain searchers after God, 

To us the Holy Ghost doth come ; 
From us thou hidest thine abode, 
But thou wilt make our souls thy home.

1 The Lord, how wondrous are his ways ! 
How firm his truth, how large his grace ! 
He takes his mercy for his throne, 
And thence he makes his glories known. 

2 Not half so high his power hath spread 
The starry heavens above our head, 

As his rich love exceeds our praise — 
Exceeds the highest hopes we raise. 

3 Not half so far hath nature placed 
The rising morning from the west, 
As his forgiving grace removes 
The daily guilt of those he loves. 

4 How slowly doth his wrath arise ! 
On swifter wings salvation flies ; 
And if he lets his anger burn. 
How soon his frowns to pity turn ! 

5 But his eternal love is sure 

To all the saints, and shall endure ; 
From age to age his truth shall reign, 
Nor cMldren's children hope in vain. 

358 

1 Up to the Lord, who reigns on high 

And views the nations from afar, 
Let everlasting praises fly, 
And tell how large his bounties are. 

2 He overrules all mortal things, 

And manages our mean aftairs ; 



n

On humble souls the King of kings 
Bestows his counsels and his cares. 

3 Our sorrows and our tears we pour 

Into the bosom of our God ; 
He hears us in the mournful hour, 
And helps us bear the heavy load. 

4 Oh, could our thankful hearts devise 

A tribute equal to thy grace, 
To the third heaven our songs should rise, 
And teach the golden harps thy praist 

359 

1 Give thanks to God ; he reigns above ; 
Kind are his thoughts, his name is love ; 
His mercy ages past have known. 

And ages long to come shall own. 

2 Let the redeemed of the Lord 
The wonders of his grace record, 
Israel, the nation whom he chose. 
And rescued from their mighty foes. 

3 He feeds and clothes us all the way, 
He guides our footsteps lest we stray ; 
He guards us with a powerful hand, 
And brings us to the heavenly land. 

4 Oh, let the saints with joy record 

The truth and goodness of the Lord ; 

How great his works, how kind his ways ! 

Let every tongue pronounce his pi aise.

1 The glory of the Lord 

The heavens declare abroad ; 
The firmament displays 

The handiwork of God ; 
Day unto day declareth speech, 
And night to night doth knowledge teach. 

2 Aloud they do not speak, 

They utter forth no word, 
Nor into language break — 

Their voice is never heard ; 
Their line through all the earth extends. 
Their words to earth's remotest ends. 

3 God's perfect law converts 

The soul in sin that lies ; 
His testimony sure 

Doth make the simple wise ; 
His statutes just delight the heart, 
His holy precepts light impart. 

4 The fear of God is clean, 

And ever doth endure ; 
His judgments all are truth 

And righteousness most pure ; 
To be desired are they far more 
Than finest gold in richest store. 

5 Who can his errors know ? 

From secret faults me cleanse ; 
Thy servant keep thou back 
From all presumptuous sins ; 
Oh. let them not my way control. 
Nor gain dominion o'er my soul. 

6 Then in thy righteous way 

My life shall upright be ; 
164 



I shall be innocent — 
From great transgression free ; 
Accept my words and thoughts of heart ; 
Lord ! thou my strength and Saviour art. 



361 



1 Upward I lift mine eyes. 

From God is all my aid — 
The God that built the skies 
And earth and nature made ; 
God is the tower 
To which I fly ; his grace is nigh 
In every hour. 

2 My feet shall never slide, 

And fall in fatal snares. 
Since God, my guard and guide, 
Defends me from my fears ; 
Those wakeful eyes. 
That never sleep, shall Israel keep 
When dangers rise. 

3 No burning heats by day, 

Nor blasts of evening air 
Shall take my health away 
If God be with me there ; 
Thou art my sun. 
And thou my shade, to guard my bead 
By night or noon. 

4 Hast thou not given thy word 

To save my soul from death? 
And I can trust my Lord 
To keep my mortal breath ; 
I '11 go and come, 
Nor fear to die till from on high 
Thou call me home.

Oh, gratefully sing his power and love ; 
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of days,

praise.

In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail ; 
Thy mercies how tender ! how firm to the

And royal state maintains,

Arrayed in robes of light, 
Begirt with sovereign might, 

And rays of majesty around.

Thy grace is ever new ; 

There fixed, thy church shall ne'er remove ; 
Thy saints with holy fear 
Shall in thy courts appear, 
And sing thine everlasting love.

1 I SING th' almighty power of God, 

That made the mountains rise, 
That spread the flowing seas abroad 
And built the lofty skies. 

2 I sing the wisdom that ordained 

The sun to rule the day ; 
The moon shines full at his command, 
And all the stars obey. 

3 I sing the goodness of the Lord, 

That filled the earth with food ; 
He formed the creatures with his word, 
And then pronounced them good. 

4 Lord ! how thy wonders are displayed 

Where'er I turn mine eye ! 
If I survey the ground I tread, 
Or gaze upon the sky ! 

5 There 's not a plant or flower below 

But makes thy glories known ; 
And clouds arise and tempests blow 
By orde; from thy throne. 

365 

1 Sing to the Lord Jehovah's name. 

And in his strength rejoice ; 
When his salvation is our theme, 
Exalted be our voice. 

2 With thanks approach his awful sight. 

And psalms of honor sing ! 
The Lord 's a God of boundless might, 
The whole creation's King. 
166 



3 Come, and with humble souls adore ; 

Come, kneel before his face : 
Oh, may the creatures of his power 
Be children of his grace ! 

4 Now is the time ; he bends his ear. 

And waits for your request ; 
Come, lest he rouse his wrath, and swear, 
" Ye shall not see my rest." 

366 

1 Father ! how wide thy glory shines ! 

How high thy wonders rise ! 
Known through the earth by thousand signs, 
By thousand through the skies. 

2 But when we view thy strange deisgn 

To save rebellious worms. 
Where vengeance and compassion join 
In their divinest forms, 

3 Here the whole Deity is known, 

Nor dares a creature guess 
Which of the glories brightest shone, 
The justice or the grace. 

4 Now the full glories of the Lamb 

Adorn the heavenly plains ; 
Bright seraphs learn Immanuel's name. 
And try their choicest strains. 

5 Oh, may I bear some humble part 

In that immortal song ! 
Wonder and joy shall tune my hea rt, 
And love command my tongue.

Oh, be stirred up his holy name 
To magnify and bless. 

2 Bless, my soul, the Lord thy God, 

And not forgetful be 
Of all his gracious benefits 
He hath bestowed on thee. 

3 All thy iniquities who doth 

Most graciously forgive ; 
Who thy diseases all and pains 
Doth heal, and thee relieve. 

4 Who doth redeem thy life that thou 

To death mayst not go down ; 
Who thee with loving-kindness doth. 
And tender mercies, crown ; 

5 Who with abundance of good things 

Doth satisfy thy mouth ; 
And even as the eagle's age. 
He hath renewed thy youth. 

6 The Lord Jehovah gracious is, 

And he is merciful. 
Long-suffering and slow to wrath, 
In kindness plentiful. 



7 Oh, bless and magnify the Lord, 

Ye glorious hosts of his ; 

Ye ministers that do fulfill 

Whate'er his pleasure is. 

8 Oh, bless the Lord, all ye his works, 

Wherewith the world is stored ; 
In his dominions everywhere, 
My soul, bless thou the Lord. 

368 

1 Holy and reverend is the name 

Of our eternal King ; 
Thrice holy Lord ! the angels cry ; 
Thrice holy ! let us sing. 

2 The deepest reverence of the mind 

Pay, my soul ! to God ; 
Lift with thy hands a holy heart 
To his sublime abode. 

3 With sacred awe pronounce his name 

Whom words nor thoughts can reach 
A broken heart shall please him more 
Than the best forms of speech. 

4 Thou holy God ! preserve my soul 

From all pollution free ; 
The pure in heart are thy delight, 
And they thy face shall see.

1 God moves in a mysterious way 

His wonders to perform ; 
He plants his footsteps in the sea, 
And rides upon the storm. 

2 Deep in unfathomable mines 

Of never-failing skill 
He treasures up his bright designs, 
And works his sovereign will. 

3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take ; 

The clouds ye so much dread 
Are big with mercy, and shall break 
In blessings on your head. 

4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense. 

But trust him for his grace ; 
Behind a frowning providence 
He hides a smiling face. 

5 His purposes will ripen fast, 

Unfolding every hour ; 
The bud may have a bitter taste, 
But sweet will be the flower. 

6 Blind unbelief is sure to err 

And scan his work in vain ; 
God is his own interpreter. 
And he will make it plain. 

370 

1 Thy way, O God ! is in the sea, 
Thy paths I cannot trace. 
Nor comprehend the mystery 
Of thine unbounded grace. 
168 



2 'T is but in part I know thy will ; 

I bless thee for the sight ; 
When will thy love the rest reveal 
In glory's clearer light? 

3 As through a glass I dimly see 

The wonders of thy love ; 
How little do I know of thee. 
Or of the joys above ! 

4 With rapture I shall soon survey 

Thy providence and grace ; 
And spend an everlasting day 
In wonder, love and praise.

Or to appoint our ways?

E'en crosses from his sovereign hand 
Are blessings in disguise. 

3 Why should we doubt a Father's love. 

So constant and so kind? 

To his unerring, gracious will 

Be every wish resigned. 

4 In thy fair book of life divine, 

My God ! inscribe my name ; 

There let it fill some humble place 

Beneath my Lord, the Lamb.

1 Keep silence, all created things, 

And wait your Maker's nod ; 
My soul stands trembling while she angs 
The honors of her God. 

2 Life, death and hell, and worlds unknown, 

Hang on his firm decree ; 
He sits on no precarious throne, 
Nor borrows leave to be. 

3 Chained to his throne a volume lies. 

With all the fates of men. 
With every angel's form and size, 
Drawn by th* eternal pen. 

4 His providence unfolds his book, 

And makes his counsels shine ; 
Each opening leaf and every stroke 
Fulfills some deep design. 

5 My God ! I would not long to see 

My fate, with curious eyes. 
What gloomy lines are writ for me. 
Or what bright scenes may rise. 

6 In thy fair book of life and grace 

May I but find my name 
Recorded in some humble place. 
Beneath my Lord, the Lamb. 

373 

1 Let children hear the mighty deeds 
Which God performed of old, 
Which in our younger years we saw, 
And which our fathei-s told. 



2 He bids us make his glories known, 

His works of power and grace. 
And we '11 convey his wonders down 
Through every rising race. 

3 Our lips shall tell them to our sons. 

And they again to theirs, 
That generations yet unborn 
May teach them to their heirs. 

4 Thus shall they learn in God alone 

Their hope securely stands, 
That they may ne'er forget his works, 
But practice his commands. 

374 

1 The l/ord Jehovah unto all 

His goodness doth declare, 
And over all his mighty works 
His tender mercies are. 

2 Thy kingdom shall for ever stand, 

Thy reign through ages all ; 
God raiseth all that are bowed down 
Upholdeth all that fall. 

3 The eyes of all things wait on thee, 

Thou Giver of all good ! 
And thou in season due dost give 
To every one his food. 

4 My mouth the praises of the Lord 

To publish shall not cease ; 
Let all flesh join his holy name 
For evermore to bless.

1 God ! we praise thee, and confess 

That thou the only Lord 

And everlasting Father art, 

By all the earth adored. 

2 To thee all angels cry aloud ; 

To thee the powers on high, 
Both cherubim and seraphim, 
Continually do cry. 

3 holy, holy, holy Lord ! 

Whom heavenly hosts obey. 
The world is with the glory filled 
Of thy majestic sway. 

4 The apostles' glorious company, 

And prophets crowned with light. 
With all the martyrs' noble host. 
Thy constant praise recite. 

5 The holy church throughout the world, 

O Lord 1 confesses thee, 
That thou th' eternal Father art. 
Of boundless majesty. 

376 

1 Great God ! how infinite art thou ! 

What worthless worms are we ! 
Let the whole race of creatures bow. 
And pay their praise to thee. 

2 Thy throne eternal ages stood, 

Ere seas or stars were made ; 
Thou art the ever-living God, 
Were all the nations dead. 
170 



3 Eternity, with all its years, 

Stands present in thy view ; 
To thee there 's nothing old appears — 
Great God I there 's nothing new. 

4 Our lives through various scenes are drawn, 

And vexed with trifling cares. 
While thine eternal thought moves on 
Thine undisturbed affairs. 



377 



1 The Lord our God is clothed with might. 

The winds obey his will ; 
He speaks, and in his heavenly height 
The rolling sun stands still. 

2 Rebel, ye waves ! and o'er the land 

With threatening aspect roar ; 
The Lord uplifts his awful hand. 
And chains you to the shore. 

3 Howl, winds of night! your force combine ; 

Without his high behest 
Ye shall not in the mountain pine 
Disturb the sparrow's nest. 

4 His voice sublime is heard afar, 

In distant peals it dies ; 
He yokes the whirlwind to his car, 
And sweeps the howling skies. 

5 Ye nations ! bend, in reverence bend ; 

Ye monarchs ! wait his nod, 
And bid the choral song ascend 
To celebrate our God.

1 Call Jehovah thy salvation, 

Rest beneath the Almighty's shade ; 
In his secret habitation 
Dwell, nor ever be dismayed ; 

2 There no tumult can alarm thee, 

Thou shalt dread no hidden snare ; 
Guile nor violence can harm thee, 
In eternal safeguard there. 

3 From the sword, at noon-day wasting. 

From the noisome pestilence 
In the depth of midnight blasting, 
God shall be thy sure defence ; 

4 Fear not thou the deadly quiver 

When a thousand feel the blow ; 
Mercy shall thy soul deliver 
Though ten thousand be laid low. 

5 Since, with pure and warm affection 

Thou on God hast set thy love, 
With the wings of his protection 
He will shield thee from above ; 

6 Thou shalt call on him in trouble : 
! He will hearken, he will save ; 

j Here, for grief, reward thee double, 
Crown with life beyond the grave. 

379 

I 1 God is love; his mercy brightens 
I All the path in which we rove ; 

i Bliss he wakes and woe he lightens ; 
God is wisdom, God is love. 



2 Chance and change are busy ever ; 

Man decays and ages move ; 

But his mercy waneth never ; 

God is wisdom, God is love. 

3 E'en the hour that darkest seemeth 

Will his changeless goodness prove ; 
From the gloom his brightness stream eth ; 
God is wisdom, God is love. 

4 He with earthly cares entwineth 

Hope and comfort from above ; 
Everywhere his glory shineth ; 
God is wisdom, God is love. 

380 . 

1 Praise the Lord ! ye heavens, adore hire 

Praise him, angels in the height ; 
Sun and moon, rejoice before him ; 
Praise him, all ye stars of light. 

2 Praise the Lord, for he hath spoken ; 

Worlds his mighty voice obeyed ; 
Laws which never shall be broken 
For their guidance he hath made. 

3 Praise the Lord ! for he is glorious; 

Never shall his promise fail ; 
God hath made his saints victorious, 
Sin and death shall not prevail. 

4 Praise the God of our salvation, 

Hosts on high his power prof laim ; 
Heaven and earth and all creation 
Laud and magnify his name.

1 O God ! thou art my God alone ; 

Early to thee my soul shall cry, 
A pilgrim in a land unknown, 

A thirsty land whose springs are dry. 

2 Oh, that it were as it hath been, 

When, praying in the holy place, 
Thy power and glory I have seen, 
And marked the footsteps of thy grace. 

3 Yet through this rough and thorny maze 

I follow hard on thee, my God ! 
Thy hand unseen upholds my ways, 
I safely tread where thou hast trod. 

4 Thee, in the watches of the night, 

When I remember on my bed. 
Thy presence makes the darkness light, 
Thy guardian wings are round my head, 

5 Better than life itself thy love ; 

Dearer than all beside to me ; 
For whom have I in heaven above 
Or what on earth compared with thee ? 

382 

1 O Lord ! how full of sweet content 
Our years of pilgrimage are spent ! 
Where'er we dwell, we dwell with thee, 
In heaven, in earth or on the sea. 

2 To us remains nor place nor time ; 
Our country is in every clime ; 
We can be calm and free from care 
On any shoi e, since God is there. 

172 



3 While place we seek or place we shun, 
The soul finds happiness in none ; 
But with our God to guide our way, 

'T is equal joy to go or stay. 

4 Could we be cast where thou art not, 
That were indeed a dreadful lot ; 
But regions none remote we call. 
Secure of finding God in all. 

383 

1 Pbaise, everlasting praise, be paid 
To him that earth's foundation laid ; 
Praise to the God whose strong decrees 
Sway the creation as he please. 

2 Praise to the goodness of the Lord, 
Who rules his people by his word ; 
And there, as strong as his decrees, 
He sets his kindest promises. 

3 Whence, then, should doubts and fears arise ? 
Why trickling sorrow drown our eyes ? 
Slowly, alas ! our mind receives 

The comforts that our Maker gives. 

4 Oh, for a strong, a lasting faith 

To credit what th' Almighty saith ! 
T' embrace the message of his Son, 
And call the joys of heaven our own 1 

5 Then, should the earth's old pillars shp.ke, 
And all the wheels of nature break, 

Our steady souls should fear no more 
Than solid rocks when billows roar.

1 God is the refuge of his saints 

When storms of sharp distress invade ; 
Ere we can offer our complaints, 
Behold him present with his aid. 

2 Let mountains from their seats be hurled 

Down to the deep and buried there, 
Convulsions shake the solid world, 
Our faith shall never yield to fear. 

3 There is a stream whose gentle flow. 

Supplies the city of our God, 
Life, love and joy still gliding through 
And watering our divine abode. 

4 That sacred stream, thy holy word, 

Our grief allays, our fear controls ; 
Sweet peace thy promises afford. 
And give new strength to fainting souls. 

5 Zion enjoys her monarch's love, 

Secure against a threatening hour ; 
Nor can her firm foundations move. 
Built on his truth and armed with power. 

385 

1 Lord ! I will bless thee all my days ; 

Thy praise shall dwell upon my tongue ; 
My soul shall glory in thy grace. 
While saints rejoice to hear the song. 

2 Come, magnify the Lord with me ; 

Come, let us all exalt his name ; 
I sought th' eternal God, and he 
Has not exposed my hope to shame. 



3 I told him all my secret grief, 

My secret groanings reached his ears ; 
He gave my inward pains relief, 
And calmed the tumult of my fears. 

4 To him the poor lift up their eyes. 

With heavenly joy their faces shine ; 
A beam of mercy from the skies 
Fills them with light and joy divine. 

5 His holy angels pitch their tents 

Around the men that serve the Lord ; 
Oh, fear and love him, all his saints ! 
Taste of his grace and trust his word. 

386 

1 God will our strength and refuge prove, 

In all distress a present aid ; 
And though the trembling earth remove, 
We will not fear or be dismayed ; 

2 Though hills be cast amid the sea, 

And angry billows round them lireak. 
Though waters roar and troubled be, 
And mountains, with their swelling, shake. 

3 A river flows whose living streams 

Make glad the city of our God, 
The tents where heavenly glory beams, 
Where God most high hath his abode. 

4 God has in her his dwelling made, 

And she shall nevermore be moved ; 
Her God shall early give her aid, 
As he her help hath ever proved.

1 No change of time shall ever shock 

My firm affection, Lord ! to thee, 
For thou hast always been my rock, 
A fortress and defence to me. 

2 Thou my deliverer art, my God ! 

My trust is in thy mighty power; 
Thou art my shield from foes abroad, 
At home my safeguard and my tower. 

3 To thee will I address my prayer 

To whom all praise we justly owe ; 
So shall I by thy watchful care 
Be guarded safe from every foe. 

4 Let the eternal Lord be praised, 

The rock on whose defence I rest, 
To highest heavens his name be raised, 
Who me with his salvation blessed. 

5 My God ! to celebrate thy fame 

My grateful voice to heaven I '11 raise, 
And nations, strangers to thy name. 
Shall learn to sing thy glorious praise. 

388 

1 Wait, O my soul ! thy Maker's will ; 
Tumultuous passions, all be still ; 
Nor let a murmuring thought arise ; 
His ways are just, his counsels wise. 

2 He in the thickest darkness dwells. 
Performs his work, the cause conceals ; 
And though his footsteps are unknown. 
Judgment and truth support his throne.

3 In heaven and earth, in air and seas, 
He executes his wise decrees ; 

And by his saints it stands confessed 
That what he does is ever best. 

4 Then, my soul ! submissive wait, 
With reverence bow before his seat ; 
And 'midst the terrors of his rod 
Trust in a wise and gracious God. 

389 

1 As pants the hart for water-brooks, 

So pants my soul, God ! for thee ; 
For thee it thirsts, to thee it looks. 
And longs the living God to see. 

2 Oh, why art thou cast down, my soul ? 

And what should so disquiet thee ? 
Still hope in God, and him extol 
Whose face brings saving health to me. 

3 Deep calls to deep in thunders loud. 

Thy waterspouts repeat the call. 
Whilst o'er me roll the billows proud, 
And all thy waves upon me fall. 

4 Yet shall the Lord command by day 

His loving-kindness, and his song 

By night be with me ; and I '11 pray 

To him who doth my life prolong. 

5 Oh, why art thou cast down, my soul? 

And what should so disquiet thee ? 
Still hope in God, and him extol 

Whose face brings saving health to me

I would obey the voice divine, 
And all inferior joys resign. 

4 Be earth, with all her scenes, withdrawn, 
Let noise and vanity be gone ; 
In secret silence of the mind. 
My heav'n, and there my God, I find. 

392 

1 I SEXD the joys of earth away — 

Away, ye tempters of the mind ! 
False as the smooth, deceitful sea, 
And empty as the whistling wind. 

2 Your streams were floating me along 

Down to the gulf of black despair ; 
And while I listened to your song 
Your streams had e'en conveyed me there. 

3 Lord ! I adore thy matchless grace, 

That warned me of that dark abyss. 
That drew me from those treacherous seas. 
And bade me seek superior bliss. 

4 Now, to the shining realms above, 

I stretch my hands and glance mine eyes • 
Oh, for the pinions of a dove 
To bear me to the upper skies ! 

5 There, from the bosom of my God, 

Oceans of endless pleasure roll ; 

There would I fix my last abode. 

And drown the sorrows of my soul. 
175 



390 

1 No more, my God ! I boast no more, 

Of all the duties I have done ; 
I quit the hopes I held before 
To trust the merits of thy Son. 

2 Now, for the love I bear his name, 

What was my gain I count my loss ; 
My former pride I call my shame, 
And nail my glory to his cross. 

3 Yes, and I must and will esteem 

All things but loss for Jesus' sake ; 
Oh, may my soul be found in him, 
And of his righteousness partake. 

4 The best obedience of my hands 

Dares not appear before thy throne, 
But faith can answer thy demands 
By pleading what my Lord has done. 

391 

1 My God ! permit me not to be 
A stranger to myself and thee ; 
Amidst a thousand thoughts I rove. 
Forgetful of my highest love, 

2 Why should my passions mix with earth. 
And thus debase my heav'nly birth? 
Why should I cleave to things below, 
And let my God, my Saviour, go ? 

3 Call me away from flesh and sense. 

One sov'reign word can draw me thence ;

1 Show pity, Lord ! O Lord ! forgive ; 
Let a repenting rebel live ; 

Are not thy mercies large and free ? 
May not a sinner trust in thee ? 

2 Oh, wash my soul from every sin, 
And make my guilty conscience clean ; 
Here on my heart the burden lies, 
And past offences pain mine eyes. 

3 My lips with shame my sins confess. 
Against thy law, against thy grace ; 
Lord ! should thy judgment grow severe, 
I am condemned, but thou art clear. 

4 Should sudden vengeance seize my breath, 
I must pronounce thee just in death ; 
And if my soul were sent to hell, 

Thy righteous law approves it well. 

5 Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord ! 
Whose hope, still hovering round thy word. 
Would light on some sweet promise there. 
Some sure support against despair.

1 A BROKEN heart, my God ! my King 1 
Is all the sacrifice I bring : 

The God of grace will ne'er despise 
A broken heart for sacrifice. 

2 My soul lies humbled in the dust, 

And owns thy dreadful sentence just ; 
176 



Look down, Lord ! with pitying eye, 
And save the soul condemned to die. 

3 Then will I teach the world thy ways ; 
Sinners shall learn thy sovereign grace ; 
I '11 lead them to my Saviour's blood, 
And they shall praise a pard'ning God. 

4 Oh, may thy love inspire my tongue ; 
Salvation shall be all my song, 

And all my powers shall join to bless, 
The Lord, my strength and righteousness. 

395 

1 O THOU that hear'st when sinners cry ! 
Though all my crimes before thee lie. 
Behold them not with angry look. 
But blot their mem'ry from thy book. 

2 Create my nature pure within. 
And form my soul averse to sin ; 
Let thy good Spirit ne'er depart. 

Nor hide thy presence from my heart 

3 I cannot live without thy light. 

Cast out and banished from thy sight ; 
Thy holy joys, my God ! restore. 
And guard me, that I fall no more. 

4 Though I have grieved thy Spirit, Lord ! 
His help and comfort still afford. 

And let a wretch come near thy throne 
To plead the merits of thy Son.

1 With broken heart and contrite sigh, 
A trembling sinner, Lord ! I crs' : 
Thy pardoning grace is rich and free ; 
God ! be merciful to me ! 

2 I smite upon my troubled breast, 

With deep and conscious guilt oppressed ; 
Christ and his cross my only plea ; 
God ! be merciful to me ! 

3 Far oflf I stand with tearful eyes, 
Nor dare uplift them to the skie^ ; 
But thou dost all my anguish see ; 
God ! be merciful to me ! 

4 Nor alms, nor deeds that I have done, 
Can for a single sin atone ; 

To Calvary alone I flee ; 
God ! be merciful to me !

And chase these shadowy forms no more 
Seek out some solitude to mourn, 
And th}?' forsaken God implore. 

2 And thou, my God ! whose piercing eye 

Distinct surveys each deep recess. 
In these abstracted hours draw nigh, 
And with thy presence fill the place. 

3 Through all the mazes of my heart 

My search let heavenly wisdom guide, 
And still its radiant beams impart 
Till all be searched and purified.

4 Then, with the visits of thy love, 

Vouchsafe my inmost soul to cheer, 
Till every grace shall join to prove 
That God has fixed his dwelling there.

And plead with thee for mercy there, 
Oh, think thou of the sinner's Friend, 
And for his sake receive my prayer. 

2 Oh, think not of my shame and guilt, 

My thousand stains of deepest dye ; 

Think of the blood which Jesus spilt. 

And let that blood my pardon buy. 

3 Think, Lord ! how I am still thine own, 

The trembling creature of thy hand ; 
Think how my heart to sin is prone, 
And what temptations round me stand. 

4 Oh, think upon thy holy word, 

And every plighted promise there ; 
How prayer should evermore be heard. 
And how thy glory is to spare. 

5 Oh, think not of my doubts and fears, 

My stri\'ings with thy grace divine ; 
Think upon Jesus' woes and tears, 
And let his merit stand for mine. 

6 Thine eye, thine ear, they are not dull ; 

Thine arm can never shortened be ; 
Behold me here ; my heart is full ; 
Behold, and spare and succor me !

To find thee in the evil days 

My all-sufficient Strength and Guide ; 
Who trusts in God's unchanging love 
Builds on the rock that naught can move.

What can it help us to bewail 

Each painful moment as it flies? 
Our cross and trials do but press 
The heavier for our bitterness 

8 Help me my restless heart to still, 

And wait in cheerful hope, content 

To take whate'er thy gracious will, 

Thy all-discerning love, hath sent ; 
178 



No doubt my inmost wants are known 
To him who chose me for his own. 



4 Thou know'st when joyful hours are best, 

And send'st them as thou seest them meet ; 
When I have borne the fiery test. 

And am made free from all deceit. 
Thou comest to me all unaware. 
And makest me own thy loving care. 

5 Help me to swerve not from thy ways, 

But do my own part faithfully. 
And trust thy promises of grace, 

That they may be fulfilled in me ; 
Thou never wilt forsake at need 
The soul that trusts in thee indeed.

And he, I trust, has answered prayer ; 
But it has been in such a way 
As almost drove me to despair. 

3 I hoped that in some favored hour 

At once he 'd answer my request, 

And by his love's constraining power 

Subdue my sins and give me rest. 

4 Instead of this, he made me feel 

The hidden evils of my heart, 

And let the angry powers of hell 

Assault my soul in every part. 

5 Yea, more, with his own hand he seemed 

Intent to aggravate my woe, 
Crossed all the fair designs I schemed, 
Blasted my gourds and laid me low. 

6 '■ Lord ! why is this?" I trembling cried ; 

" Wilt thou pursue thy worm to death ?" 
" 'T is in this way," the Lord replied, 
" I answer prayer for grace and faith. 



7 " These inward trials I employ 

From self and pride to set thee free, 
And break thy schemes of earthly joy, 
That thou mayst seek thine all in me." 

401 

1 My spirit sinks within me. Lord ! 

But I will call thy name to mind, 
And times of past distress record 
When I have found my God was kind. 

2 Yet will the Lord command his love 

When I address his throne by day ; 
Nor in the night his grace remove ; 
The night shall hear me sing and pray. 

3 I '11 cast myself before his feet. 

And say, " My God, my heavenly Rook ! 
Why doth thy love so long forget 
The soul that groans beneath thy stroke?"^ 

4 I '11 chide my heart that sinks so low ; 

Why should my soul indulge her grief? 
Hope in the Lord and praise him too ; 
He is my rest, my sure relief. 

5 Thy light and truth shall guide me still ; 

Thy word shall my best thoughts employ, 

And lead me to thy heavenly hill. 

My God ! my most exceeding joy !

1 THOU whose tender mercy hears 

Contrition's humble sigh, 
Whose hand, indulgent, wipes the tears 
From sorrow's weeping eye ! 

2 See, low before thy throne of grace, 

A wretched wanderer mourn ; 
Hast thou not bid me seek thy face ? 
Hast thou not said " Return " ? 

3 And shall my guilty fears prevail 

To drive me from thy feet? 
Oh, let not this dear refuge fail, 
This only safe retreat. 

4 Oh, shine on this benighted heart. 

With beams of mercy shine. 
And let thy healing voice impart 
A taste of joy divine. 

403 

1 God of mercy ! hear my call. 

My load of guilt remove ; 
Break down this separating wall 
That bars me from thy love. 

2 Give me the presence of thy grace ; 

Then my rejoicing tongue 
Shall speak aloud thy righteousness. 
And make thy praise my song. 

3 No blood of goats, nor heifer slain, 

For sin could e'er atone ; 
180 



The death of Christ shall still remain 
Sufficient and alone. 

4 A soul oppressed with sin's desert 
My God will ne'er despise ; 
An humble groan, a broken heart. 
Is our best sacrifice. 

404 

1 How oft, alas! this wretched heart 

Has wandered from the Lord ! 
How oft my roving thoughts depart, 
Forgetful of his word ! 

2 Yet sovereign mercy calls " Return !" 

Dear Lord ! and may I come 
My vile ingratitude I mourn ; 
Oh, take the wanderer home. 

3 And canst thou, wilt thou, yet forgive, 

And bid my crimes remove? 
And shall a pardoned rebel live 
To speak thy wondrous love ? 

4 Almighty grace ! thy healing power, 

How glorious, how divine ! 
That can to life and bliss restore 
So vile a heart as mine. 

5 Thy pard'ning love, so free, so sweet, 

Dear Saviour ! I adore : 
Oh, keep me at thy sacred feet, 
And let me rove no more.

1 Out of the deeps of long distress, 

The borders of despair, 
I sent my cries to seek thy grace, 
My groans to reach thine ear. 

2 Great God ! should thy severer eye 

And thine impartial hand 
Mark and revenge iniquity, 
No mortal flesh could stand. 

3 But there are pardons with my God 

For crimes of high degree ; 
Thy Son hath bought them with his blood 
To draw us near to thee. 

i I wait for thy salvation. Lord 
With strong desires I wait ; 
My soul, invited by thy word. 
Stands watching at thy gate. 

5 Just as the guards that keep the night 

Long for the morning skies, 
Watch the first beams of breaking light, 
And meet them with their eyes, 

6 So waits my soul to see thy grace ; 

And more intent than they. 
Meets the first openings of thy face, 
And finds a brighter day. 

7 Then in the Lord let Israel trust, 

I>5ft Israel seek his face ; 
The Lord is good as well as just. 
And i.lenteous in his grace. 



8 There 's full redemption at his throne 
For sinners long enslaved ; 
The great Redeemer is his Son, 
And Israel shall be saved. 

406 

1 In thy great loving-kindness, Lord I 

Be merciful to me ; 
In thy compassion great blot out 
All my iniquity. 

2 Do thou with hyssop sprinkle me, 

And clean I then shall be ; 
I shall be whiter than the snow 
When I am washed by thee. 

3 Of gladness and of joyfulness 

Make me to hear the voice, 
That so these very bones which thou 
Hast broken may rejoice. 

4 All my iniquities blot out, 

My sin hide from thy view ; 
Create a clean heart. Lord ! in me, 
A spirit right renew. 

5 And from thy gracious presence. Lord ! 

Oh, cast me not away ; 
Thy Holy Spirit utterly 
Take not from me, I pray. 

6 The joy which thy salvation brings 

Again to me restore ; 
With thy free Spirit, oh, do thou 
Uphold me evermore.

1 I WAITED patient for the Lord — 

He bowed to hear my cry ; 
He saw me resting on his word, 
And brought salvation nigh. 

2 He raised me from a horrid pit, 

Where mourning long I lay, 
And from my bonds released my feet- 
Deep bonds of miry clay. 

3 Firm on a rock he made me stand. 

And taught my cheerful tongue 
To praise the wonders of his hand. 
In a new thankful song. 

4 I '11 spread his works of grace abroad ; 

The saints with joy shall hear; 
And sinners learn to make my God 
Their only hope and fear. 

5 How many are thy thoughts of love ! 

Thy mercies, Lord ! how great! 
We have not words nor hours enough 
Their numbers to repeat. 



408 



1 With tears of anguish I lament, 

Here at thy feet, my God ! 
My passion, pride and discontent. 
And vile ingratitude. 

2 Sure, there was ne'er a heart so base, 

So false, as mine has been, 
So faithless to its promises, 
So prone to every sin. 
182 



■n — ^ 

3 How long, dear Saviour ! shall I feel 

These struggles in my breast? 
When wilt thou bow my stubborn will, 
And give my conscience rest ? 

4 Break, sovereign grace ! oh, break the chatm, 

And set the captive free ; 
Reveal, Almighty God ! thine arm, 
And haste to rescue me. 

409 

1 All that I was — my sin, my guilt. 

My death — was all my own ; 
All that I am, I owe to thee. 
My gracious God ! alone. 

2 The evil of my former state 

Was mine, and only mine ; 
The good in which I now rejoice 
Is thine, and only thine. 

3 The darkness of my former state. 

The bondage, all was mine ; 
The light of life, in which I walk. 
The liberty, is thine. 

4 Thy grace first made me feel my sin, 

It taught me to believe ; 
Then, in believing, peace I found. 
And now I live, I live. 

5 All that I am, e'en here on earth, 

All that I hope to be, 
When Jesus comes and glory dawns, 
I owe it, Lord ! to thee.

1 Oh, for a heart to praise my God ! 

A heart from sin set free ; 
A heart that always feels thy blood, 
So freely shed for me ; 

2 A heart resigned, submissive, meek, 

My great Redeemer's throne. 
Where only Christ is heard to speak, 
Where Jesus reigns alone. 

3 An humble, lowly, contrite heart, 

Believing, true and clean ; 
Which neither life nor death can part 
From him that dwells within ! 

4 A heart in every thought renewed. 

And filled with love divine ; 
Perfect and right and pure and good, 
A copy. Lord ! of thine. 

411 

1 Oh, greatly blessed the people are 

The joyful sound that know ; 
In brightness of thy face, Lord ! 
They ever on shall go. 

2 They in thy name shall all the day 

Rejoice exceedingly ; 
And in thy righteousness shall they 
Exalted be on high ; 



3 Because the glory of their strength 

Doth only stand in thee ; 
And in thy favor shall our horn 
And pow'r exalted be. 

4 For God is our defence ; he will 

To us salvation bring ; 
The holy One of Israel 
Is our almighty King. 

412 

1 There is a safe and secret place, 

Beneath the wings divine, 
Reserved for all the heirs of grace ; 
Oh, be that refuge mine ! 

2 The least and feeblest there may bide, 

Uninjured and unawed ; 
While thousands fall on every side, 
He rests secure in God. 

3 He feeds in pastures, large and fair, 

Of love and truth divine ; 
child of God ! glory's heir ! 
How rich a lot is thine ! 

4 A hand almighty to defend. 

An ear for every call, 

An honored life, a peaceful end, 

And heaven to crown it all !

1 Thou art my portion, my God ! 

Soon as I know thy way, 
My heart makes haste t' obey thy word, 
And suffers no delay. 

2 I choose the path of heavenly truth, 

And glory in my choice ; 

Not all the riches of the earth 

Could make me so rejoice. 

3 The testimonies of thy grace 

I set before mine eyes ; 
Thence I derive my daily strength, 
And there my comfort lies. 

4 If once I wander from thy path, 

I think upon my ways ; 
And turn my feet to thy commands. 
And trust thy pard'ning grace. 

5 Now I am thine, for ever thine ; 

Oh, save thy servant. Lord ! 
Thou art my shield, my hiding-place, 
My hope is in thy word. 

414 

1 Unshaken as the sacred hill, 

And fixed as mountains be, 
Firm as a rock the soul shall rest 
That leans, O Lord ! on thee. 

2 Not walls nor hills could guard so well 

Old Salem's happy ground ; 
As those eterna) arms of love, 
Tliat every Siiint surround. 
184- 



3 Deal gently. Lord ! with souls sincere, 
And lead them safely on 
To the bright gates of paradise, 
Where Christ, their Lord, is gone. 

415 

1 Oh, that the Lord would guide my ways 

To keep his statutes still ! 
Oh, that my God would grant me grace 
To know and do his will ! 

2 Oh, send thy Spirit down, to write 

Thy law upon my heart ; 
Nor let my tongue indulge deceit, 
Or act the liar's part. 

3 From vanity turn off my eyes; 

Let no corrupt design 
Nor covetous desires arise 
Within this soul of mine. 

4 Order my footsteps by thy word. 

And make my heart sincere ; 

Let sin have no dominion, Lord ! 

But keep my conscience clear. 

5 My soul hath gone too far astray, 

My feet too often slip ; 
Yet since I 've not forgot thy way, 
Restore thy wandering sheep. 

6 Make me to walk in thy commands — 

'T is a delightful road ; 
Nor let my head, or heart, or hands, 
Offend against my God.

Oh, may I call thee mine ? 
May I with sweet assurance claim 
A portion so divine ?

What harm can ever reach my soul 
Beneath my Father's eye ? 

3 Whatever thy providence denies, 

I calmly would resign ; 
For thou art just and good and wise ; 
Oh, bend my will to thine. 

4 Whatever thy sacred will ordains. 

Oh, give me strength to bear ; 
And let me know my Father reigns, 
And trust his tender care. 

5 If pain and sickness rend this frame,

Is not thy mercy still the same, 
To cheer my drooping heart? 

6 My God ! my Father ! be thy name 

My solace and my stay ; 
Oh, wilt thou seal my humble claim. 
And drive my fears away ?

Thy majenty how bright! 



How beautiful thy mercy seat, 
In depths of burning light ! 

2 How dread are thine eternal years, 

everlasting Lord ! 
By prostrate spirits, day and night, 
Incessantly adored. 

3 How beautiful, how beautiful, 

The sight of thee must be. 
Thine endless wisdom, boundless power 
And awful purity 

4 Oh, how I fear thee, living God ! 

With deepest, tenderest fears, 
And worship thee with trembling hope 
And penitential tears. 

5 Yet I may love thee too, Lord ! 

Almighty as thou art, 
For thou hast stooped to ask of me 
The love of my poor heart. 

6 No earthly father loves like thee, 

No mother half so mild 
Bears and forbears as thou hast done 
With me, thy sinful child. 

7 Father of Jesus, love's rewaid ! 

What rapture will it be, 
Prostrate before thy throne to lie, 
And ever gaze on thee !

1 Soon as I heard my Father say, 

" Ye children ! seek my grace," 
My heart replied without delay, 
" I '11 seek my Father's face." 

2 Let not thy face be hid from me, 

Nor frown my soul away ; 
God of my life ! I fly to thee 
In a distressing day. 

3 Should friends and kindred near and dear 

Leave me to want or die. 
My God would make my life his care, 
And all my need supply. 

1 My fainting flesh had died with grief 

Had not my soul believed, 

To see thy grace provide relief; 

Nor was my hope deceived. 

5 Wait on the Lord, ye trembling saints 
And keep your courage up ; 
He '11 raiwe your spirit when it faints. 
And far exceed your hope. 

419 

' Oh, could I find, from day to day, 
A nearness to my God, 
Then should my hours glide sweet away, 
Nor sin nor fear intrude. 

2 Lord ! 1 desire with thee to live 

Anew from day to day, 
In joys the world can never give. 
Nor ever take away. 
186 



3 Jesus ! come and rule my heart, 

And make me wholly thine. 
That I may nevermore depart. 
Nor grieve thy love divine. 

4 Thus till my last expiring breath, 

Thy goodness I '11 adore ; 
And when my flesh dissolves in death, 
My soul shall love thee more. 

420 

1 To heaven I lift my waiting eyes ; 

There all my hopes are laid ; 
The Lord who built the earth and skies 
Is my perpetual aid. 

2 Their steadfast feet shall never fall 

Whom he designs to keep ; 
His ear attends the softest call ; 
His eyes can never sleep. 

3 Israel ! rejoice, and rest secure ; 

Thy keeper is the Lord ; 
His wakeful eyes employ his power 
For thine eternal guard. 

4 No scorching sun nor sickly moon 

Shall have his leave to smite ; 
He shields thy head from burning noon. 
From blasting damps at night. 

5 He guards thy soul, he keeps thy breath, 

Where thickest dangers come ; 

Go and return, secure from death, 

Till God commands thee home.

! 1 Thou art my hiding-place, Lord ! 
On thee I fix my trust, 
Encouraged by thy holy word, 
A feeble child of dust 

2 I have no argument beside, 

I urge no other plea ; 
And 't is enough the Saviour died — 
The Saviour died for me. 

3 Mid trials heavy to be borne, 

When mortal strength is vain, 
A heart with grief and anguish torn, 
A body racked with pain ; 

4 Ah ! what could give the sufferer rest. 

Bid every murmur flee. 
But this the witness in my breast 
That Jesus died for me ? 

5 And when thine awful voice commands 

This body to decay, 
And life, in its last lingering sands, 
Is ebbing fast away, 

6 Then, though it be in accents weak. 

And faint and tremblingly, 
Oh, give me strength in death to speak, 
"My Saviour died for me." 



1 My God ! thy service well demands 

The remnant of my days ; 
Why was this fleeting breath renewed 
But to renew thy praise ? 

2 Thine arm of everlasting love 

Did this weak frame sustain, 
When life was hovering o'er the grave, 
And nature sunk with pain. 

3 Calmly I bowed my fainting head 

On thy dear faithful breast, 
Pleased to obey my Father's call 
To his eternal rest. 

4 Into thy hands, my Saviour, God ! 

Did I my soul resign. 
In firm dependence on that truth 
Which made salvation mine. 

5 Back from the borders of the grave 

At thy command I come. 
Nor would I urge a speedier flight 
To my celestial home. 

6 Where thou appointest my abode, 

There would I choose to be. 

For in thy presence, death is life, 

And earth is heaven with thee.

1 Father ! whate'er of earthly bliss 

Thy sovereign will denies, 
Accepted at thy throne of grace, 
Let this petition rise ; 

2 " Give me a calm, a thankful heart, 

From every murmur free ; 
The blessings of thy grace impart, 
And make me live to thee. 

3 " Let the sweet hope that thou art mine 

My life and death attend ; 
Thy presence through my journey shine, 
And crown my journey's end."

In silence soft and sweet ; 
And thou, my soul, sit gently down 
At thy great Sovereign's feet. 

2 Jehovah's awful voice is heard. 

Yet gladly I attend ; 
For, lo ! the everlasting God 
Proclaims himself my friend. 

S Harmonious accents to my soul 
The Mounds of peace convey ; 
The tempest at his word subsides, 
And winds and seas obey. 

4 By all its joys I charge my heart 

To grieve his love no more, 
188 



But charmed by melody divine. 
To give its follies o'er. 

425 

1 O Lord ! my best desire fulfill, 

And help me to resign 
Life, health and comfort to thy will, 
And make thy pleasure mine. 

2 Why should I shrink at thy con.mand 

Whose love forbids my fears ? 
Or tremble at the gracious hand 
That wipes away my tears ? 

3 No ; let me rather freely yield 

What most I prize to thee, 
Who never hast a good withheld, 
Or wilt withhold, from me. 

4 Thy favor all my journey through 

Thou art engaged to grant ; 
What else I want, or think I do, 
'T is better still to want. 

5 Wisdom and mercy guide my way 

Shall I resist them both ? 
A poor blind creature of a day. 
And crushed before the moth. 

6 But, ah I my inmost spirit cries. 

Still bind me to thy sway ; 
Else the next cloud that veils my skies 
Drives all these thoughts away.

A calm and heavenly frame, 

A light to shine upon the road 

That leads me to the Lamb.

And drove thee from my breast.

Thy constant aid impart ;

4 Oh, never let my soul remove 

From this divine retreat ; 
Still let me trust thy power and love,

What snares beset my way ! 
To heaven, oh, let me lift mine eyes,

And melt in flowing tears ! 
I strive against my foes in vain, 
I sink amid my fears. 

3 Lord ! increase my faith and hope 

When foes and fears prevail, 

And bear my fainting spirit up, 

Or soon my strength will fail. 

4 Oh, keep me in thy heavenly w? y, 

And bid the tempter flee. 

And never, never let me stray 

From happiness and thee.

Before my infant heart conceived 
From whom those comforts flowed. 

3 When in the slippery paths of youth 

With heedless steps I ran, 
Thine arm, unseen, conveyed me safe. 
And led me up to man. 

4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 

My daily thanks employ ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart 
That tastes those gifts with joy. 

5 Through every period of my life 

Thy goodness I '11 pursue, 
A.nd after death in distant worlds 
That glorious theme renew. 

6 Through all eternity to thee 

A joyful song I '11 raise ; 

But oh, eternity *s too short 

To utter all thy praise. 

430 

1 Lord ! when my raptured thought surveys 
Creation's beauties o'er. 
All nature joins to teach thy praise, 
And bid my soul adore. 
190 



2 Where'er I turn my gazing eyes 

Thy radiant footsteps shine ; 
Ten thousand pleasing wonders rise, 
And speak their source divine. 

3 On me thy providence hath shone 

With gentle, smiling rays ; 
Oh, let my lips and life make known 
Thy goodness and thy praise. 

4 All-bounteous Lord ! thy grace impart ; 

Oh, teach me to improve 
Thy gifts, with ever-grateful heart, 
And crown them with thy love. 

431 

1 THOU whose bounty fills my cup 

With every blessing meet ! 
I give thee thanks for every drop, 
The bitter and the sweet. 

2 I praise thee for the desert road, 

And for the river-side, 
For all thy goodness hath bestowed, 
And all thy grace denied. 

3 I thank thee both for smile and frown, 

And for the gain and loss ; 
I praise thee for the future crown, 
And for the present cross. 

4 I bless thee for the glad increase, 

And for the waning joy ; 
And for this strange, this settled peace, 
Which nothing can destroy.

1 Whilst thee I seek, protecting Power ! 

Be my vain wishes stilled ; 

And may this consecrated hour 

With better hopes be filled. 

2 Thy love the power of thought bestowed, 

To thee my thoughts would soar ; 
Thy mercy o'er my life has flowed ; 
That mercy I adore. 

3 In each event of life, how clear 

Thy ruling hand I see ! 
Each blessing to my soul most dear 
Because conferred by thee. 

4 In every joy that crowns my days, 

In every pain I bear, 
My heart shall find delight in praise, 
Or seek relief in prayer. 

5 When gladness wings the favored hour, 

Thy love my thoughts shall fill ; 
Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower, 
My soul shall meet thy will. 

6 My lifted eye without a tear 

The gathering storm shall see ; 
My steadfast heart shall know no fear ; 
That heart will rest on thee. 

433 

1 As pants the hart for cooling streams 
When heated in the chase, 
So pants my soul, Lord ! for thee, 
And thy refreshing grace. 



2 For thee, my God, the living God ! 

My thirsty soul doth pine ; 
Oh, when shall I behold thy face, 
Thou majesty divine ! 

3 I *igh to think of happier days. 

When thou, Lord ! wast nigh. 
When every heart was tuned to praise, 
And none more blessed than I. 

4 Why restless, why cast down, my soul? 

Trust God, and thou shalt sing 
His praise again, and find him still 
Thy health's eternal spring. 

434 

1 My God ! the covenant of thy love 

Abides for ever sure. 
And in its matchless grace I feel 
My happiness secure. 

2 Since thou, the everlasting God, 

My Father art become, 
Jesus my guardian and my friend. 
And heaven my final home, 

3 I welcome all thy sovereign will, 

For all that will is love ; 
And w^hen I know not what thou dost, 
I wait the light above. 

4 Thy covenant, in the darkest gloom. 

Shall be my strength and stay. 
Shall cheer my passage to the tomb. 
And guide to endless day.

How sure is their defence ! 

Eternal wisdom is their guide, 

Their help, Omnipotence.

In sounds of glory sing.

His goodness to the skies;

On thee for daily food ; 
Thy liberal hand provides their meat,

Delight to bless thy name.

1 God I my supporter and my hope, 

My help for ever near, 
Thine arm of mercy held me up 
When sinking in despair. 

2 Thy counsels, Lord ! shall guide my feet 

Through this dark wilderness. 
Thy hand conduct me near thy seat. 
To dwell before thy face. 

3 Were I in heaven without my God, 

'T would be no joy to me. 
And while this earth is my abode 
I long for none but thee. 

4 What if the springs of life were broke. 

And flesh and heart should faint ? 
God is my soul's eternal rock. 
The strength of every saint. 

439 

1 To thee, my Shepherd and my Lord, 

A grateful song I '11 raise ; 

Oh, let the feeblest of thy flock 

Attempt to sing thy praise. 

2 My life, my joy, my hope, I owe 

To thy amazing love ; 
Ten thousand tho'.isand comforts here. 
And nobler bliss above. 

3 To thee my trembling spirit flies, 

With sin and grief oppressed ; 
Thy gentle voice dispels my fears, 
And lulls my cares to rest. 
194

4 Nay, should I walk through death's dark vale 

With double horrors spread. 
Thy rod would guide my doubtful steps 
And guard my drooping head. 

5 Lead on, dear Shepherd ! led by the«, 

No evil shall I fear ; 
Soon shall I reach thy fold above. 
And praise thee better there. 

440 

1 Dear Refuge of my weary soul ! 

On thee, when sorrows rise. 
On thee, when waves of trouble roll, 
My fainting hope relies. 

2 To thee I tell each rising grief. 

For thou alone canst heal ; 
Thy word can bring a sweet relief 
For every pain I feel. 

3 But oh, when gloomy doubts prevail, 

I fear to call thee mine ; 
The springs of comfort seem to fail, 
And all my hopes decline. 

4 Yet, gracious God ! where shall I flee ? 

Thou art my only trust. 
And still my soul would cleave to thee. 
Though prostrate in the dust. 

5 Thy mercy -seat is open still. 

Here let my soul retreat ; 
With humble hope attend thy will. 
And wait beneath thy feet

1 God of Bethel ! by whose hand 

Thy people still are fed, 
Who, through this weary pilgrimage, 
Hast all our fathers led, 

2 Our vows, our prayers, we now present 

Before thy throne of grace ; 
God of our fathers ! be the God 
Of their succeeding race. 

3 Through each perplexing path of life 

Our wandering footsteps guide ; 
Give us each day our daily bread. 
And raiment fit provide. 

4 Oh, spread thy covering wings around 

Till all our wanderings cease. 
And at our Father's loved abode 
Our souls arrive in peace. 

I Such blessings, from thy gracious hand. 
Our humble prayers implore ; 
And thou shalt be our chosen God, 
Our portion evermore. 

442 

1 The Lord 's my Shepherd, I '11 not want 

He makes me down to lie 
Lq pastures green ; he leadeth me 
The quiet waters by. 

2 My soul he doth restore again, 
I And me to walk doth make 

Within the paths of righteousness, 
E'en for his own name's sake. 



3 Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale, 

Yet will I fear no ill, 
For thou art with me, and thy rod 
And stafi" me comfort still. 

4 Goodness and mercy all my life 

Shall surely follow me, 
And in God's house for evermore 
My dwelling-place shall be. 

443 

1 The Lord himself, the mighty Lord, 

Vouchsafes to be my guide, 
The shepherd by whose constant care 
My wants are all supplied. 

2 In tender grass he makes me feed, 

And gently there repose ; 
Then leads to cooling shades, and where 
Refreshing water flows. 

3 He does my wandering soul reclaim. 

And to his endless praise 
Instruct with humble zeal to walk 
In his most righteous ways. 

4 I pass the gloomy vale of death, 

From fear and danger free. 
For there his aiding rod and staff 
Defend and comfort me. 

5 Since God doth thus his wondrous loTe 

Through all my life extend. 
That life to him I will devote, 
And in his service spend.

4 Because they dwell at ease, 

And no sad changes feel, 
They neither fear nor trust thy name, 
Nor learn to do thy will. 

5 But I, with all my cares. 

Will lean upon the Lord ; 
I '11 cast my burden on his arm, 
And rest upon his word. 

6 His arm shall well sustain 

The children of his love ; 
The ground on which their safety stands 
No earthly power can move. 

446 

1 Give to the winds thy fears ; 

Hope, and be undismay'd ; 
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears, 
God shall lift up thy head. 

2 Through waves, through clouds and storms, 

He gently clears thy way ; 
Wait thou his time ; so shall this night 
Soon end in joyous day. 

3 Still heavy is thy heart? 

Still sink thy spirits down? 
Cast off the weight, let fear depart. 
Bid every care be gone. 

4 What though thou rulest not? 

Yet heaven and earth and hell 
Proclaim God sitteth on the throne 
And ruleth all things well. 



444 

1 



When, overwhelmed with grief, 
My heart within me dies, 

Helpless and far from all relief, 
To heaven I lift mine eyes. 

2 Oh, lead me to the rock 

That 's high above my head. 
And make the covert of thy wings 
My shelter and my shade. 

3 Within thy presence, Lord ! 

For ever I '11 abide ; 
Thou art the tower of my defence. 
The refuge where I hide. 

4 Thou givest me the lot 

Of those that fear thy name; 
If endless life be their reward, 
I shall possess the same. 



445 



1 Let sinners take their course. 

And choose the road to death. 
But in the worship of my God 
I '11 spend my daily breath. 

2 My thoughts address his throne 

When morning brings the light, 
I seek his blessing every noon, 
And pay my vows at night. 

3 Thou wilt regard my cries, 

my eternal God I 
While sinners perish in surprise, 
Beneath thine angry rod.

1 Have mercy, Lord ! on me, 

As thou wert ever kind ; 
Let me, oppress'd with loads of guilt, 
Thy wonted mercy find. 

2 Against thee, Lord ! alone, 

And only in thy sight, 
Have I transgressed, and though condemn'd 
Must own thy judgment right. 

3 Blot out my crying sins, 

Nor me in anger view ; 
Create in me a heart that 's clean, 
An upright mind renew. 

4 Withdraw not thou thy help, 

Nor cast me from thy sight ; 
Nor let thy Holy Spirit take 
His everlasting flight. 

5 The joy thy favor gives 

Let me, Lord ! regain, 
And thy free Spirit's firm support 
My fainting soul sustain. 



448 



1 And shall I sit alone, 

Oppressed with grief and fear, 
To God my Father make my moan 
And he refuse to hear? 

2 If he my Father be, 

His pity he will show. 
From cruel bondage set me free, 
And inward peace bestow. 



3 If still he silence keep, 

'T is but my faith to try ; 
He knows and feels whene'er I weep, 
And softens every sigh. 

4 Then will I humbly wait. 

Nor once indulge despair ; 
My sins are great, but not so great 
As his compassions are. 

449 

1 Commit thou all thy griefs 

And ways into his hands. 
To his sure truth and tender care, 
Who earth and heaven commands. 

2 Who points the clouds their course, 

Whom winds and seas obey, 
He shall direct thy wandering feet, 
He shall prepare thy way. 

3 Thou on the Lord rely ; 

So safe shalt thou go on ; 
Fix on his work thy steadfast eye. 
So shall thy work be done. 

4 No profit canst thou gain 

By self-consuming care ; 
To him commend thy cause ; his ear 
Attends the softest prayer. 

5 Leave to his sovereign sway 

To choose and to command ; 
So shalt thou wondering own his way, 
How wise, how strong his hand.

1 My God, my life, my love ! 

To thee, to thee I call ; 
I cannot live if thou remove, 
For thou art all in all. 

2 To thee, and thee alone. 

The angels owe their bliss ; 
They sit around thy gracious throne. 
And dwell where Jesus is. 

3 Not all the harps above 

Can make a heavenly place 
If God his residence remove, 
Or but conceal his face. 

4 Nor earth nor all the sky 

Can one delight afford, 
No, not a drop of real joy. 
Without thy presence. Lord ! 

5 Thou art the sea of love 

Where all my pleasures roll. 
The circle where my passions move, 
And centre of my soul. 



451 



1 I LIFT my soul to God, 

My trust is in his name ! 
Iict not my foes that seek my blood 
Still triumph in my shame. 

2 From the first dawning light 

Till the dark evening rise, 
For thy salvation, Lord ! I wait 
With ever-longing eyes. 
198 



3 Remember all thy grace, 

And lead me in thy truth ; 

Forgive the sins of riper days, 

And follies of my youth. 

4 The Lord is just and kind ; 

The meek shall learn his ways, 
And every humble sinner find 
The methods of his grace. 

5 For his own goodness' sake 

He saves my soul from shame ; 
He pardons, though my guilt be great, 
Through my Redeemer's name. 

452 

1 How gentle God's commands, 

How kind his precepts are ! 
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord, 
And trust his constant care. 

2 Beneath his powerful sway 

His saints securely dwell ; 
That hand which bears all nature up 
Will guide his children well. 

3 Why should this anxious load 

Press down your weary mind ? 
Haste to your heavenly Father's throne, 
And sweet refreshment find. 

4 His goodness stands approved, 

Unchanged from day to day ; 
I '11 drop my burden at his feet, 
And bear a song away.

Before thee I am dumb ; 
Lest I should breathe one murm'ring word,

A Father's hand is thine ; 
With tearful eyes I look above,

Though it may seem severe ; 

Thy path is still unsullied light. 

Though dark it may appear. 

5 Jesus for me hath died ; 

Thy Son thou didst not spare ; 
His pierced hands, his bleeding side, 
Thy love for me declare. 

6 Here my poor heart can rest; 

My God ! it cleaves to thee ; 
Thy will is love ; thine end is blest ; 
All work for good to me.

1 Behold what wondrous grace 

The Father hath bestowed 

On sinners of a mortal race, 

To call them sons of God ! 

2 'T is no surprising thing 

That we should be unknown ; 
The Jewish world knew not their King, 
God's everlasting Son. 

3 Nor doth it yet appear 

How great we must be made ; 
But when we see our Saviour here, 
We shall be like our Head. 

1 A hope so much divine 
May trials well endure, 
May purge our souls from sense and sin, 
As Christ, the Lord, is pure. 

5 If in my Father's love 

I sliare a filial part, 
Send down thy Spirit like a dove 
To rest upon my heart. 

6 We would no longer lie 

Like slaves beneath thy throne ; 

Our faith shall " Abba, Father !" cry. 

And thou the kindred own. 
200 



455 



1 My God ! permit my tongue 

This joy, to call thee mine. 
And let my early cries prevail 
To taste thy love divine. 

2 My thirsty, fainting soul 

Thy mercy doth implore ; 
Not travelers in desert lands 
Can pant for water more. 

3 For life, without thy love. 

No relish can afford ; 
No joy can be compared to this, 
To serve and please the Lord. 

4 In wakeful hours at night 

I call my God to mind ; 
I think how wise thy counsels are, 
And all thy dealings kind ! 

5 Since thou hast been my help, 

To thee my spirit flies, 
And on thy watchful providence 
My cheerful hope relies. 

6 The shadow of thy wings 

My soul in safety keeps ; 
I follow where my Father leads, 
And he supports my steps.

Thus to abuse eternal love, 

Whence all our blessings flow ?

Oh, may it all my powers engage. 
To do my Master's will. 

3 Arm me with jealous care.

And oh, thy servant, Lord ! prepare 
A strict account to give. 

4 Help me to watch and pray, 

And on thyself rely, 
Assured, if I my trust betray,. 
I shall for ever die.

1 Your harps, ye trembling saints, 

Down from the willows take ; 
Load to the praise of love divine 
Bid every string awake. 

2 Though in a foreign land, 

We are not far from home, 

And nearer to our house above 

We every moment come. 

3 His grace will to the end 

Stronger and brighter shine ; 
Nor present things nor things to come 
Shall quench the spark divine. 

4 When we in darkness walk, 

Nor feel the heavenly flame, 
Then is the time to trust our God, 
And rest upon his name. 

5 Soon shall our doubts and fears 

Subside at his control ; 
His loving-kindness shall break through 
The midnight of the soul. 

6 Blest is the man, O God ! 

Tl.at stays himself on thee ; 
Who wait for thy salvation, Lord! 
Shall thy salvation see. 



459 



Mine eyes and my desire 
Are ever to the Lord ; 

I love to plead his promises 
And rest upon his word. 
202 



2 Turn, turn thee to my soul, 

Bring thy salvation near ; 
When will thy hand release my feet 
Out of the deadly snare ? 

3 When shall the sovereign grace 

Of my forgiving God 
Restore me from those dangerous ways 
My wandering feet have trod ? 

4 Oh, keep my soul from death. 

Nor put my hope to shame ; 
For I have placed my only trust 
In my Redeemer's name. 

460 

1 With humble heart and tongue. 

My God I to thee I pray ; 
Oh, bring me now, while I am young, 
To thee, the living way. 

2 Make an unguarded youth 

The object of thy care ; 
Help me to choose the way of truth 
And flee from every snare. 

3 My heart, to folly prone, 

Renew by power divine ; 
Unite it to thyself alone. 
And make me wholly thine. 

4 Oh, let thy word of grace 

My warmest thoughts employ ; 
Be this through all ray foU'wing days 
My treasure and my joy.

Father ! I know that all my life 
Is portioned out for me : 

The changes that will surely come 
I do not fear to see ; 

I ask thee for a present mind, 
Intent on pleasing thee. 

2 I ask thee for a thoughtful love, 

Through constant watching wise, 
To meet the glad With joyful smiles, 

And wipe the weeping eyes ; 
A heart at leisure from itself 

To soothe and sympathize. 

3 I ask thee for the daily strength 

To none that ask denied, 
A mind to blend with outward life 

While keeping at thy side, 
Content to fill a little space, 

If thou be glorified. 

4 And if some things I do not ask 

Among my blessings be, 
1 -d have my spirit filled the more 

With grateful love to thee ; 
More careful not to serve thee much, 

But please thee perfectly. 

462 

1 Beyond, beyond that boundless sea, 
Above that dome of sky, 



Farther than thought itself can flee, 

Thy dwelling is on high ; 
Yet dear the awful thought to me 

That thou, my God ! art nigh — 
Art nigh, and yet my lab'ring mind 

Feels after thee in vain. 
Thee in these works of power to find 

Or to thy seat attain ; 
Thy messenger, the stormy wind. 

Thy path, the trackless main. 
These speak of thee with loud acclaim,* 

They thunder forth thy praise. 
The glorious honor of thy name. 

The wonders of thy ways ; 
But thou art not in tempest-flame. 

Nor in the solar blaze. 
We hear thy voice when thunders roll 

Through the wild fields of air ; 
The waves obey thy dread control ; 

Yet still thou art not there : 
Where shall I find him, my soul I 

Who yet is everywhere ? 
Oh, not in circling depth or height. 

But in the conscious breast. 
Present to faith, though veiled from sight. 

There does his Spirit rest ; 
Oh, come, thou Presence infinite ! 

And make thy creature blest.

1 Gently, gently, lay thy rod 
On my sinful head, God ! 
Stay thy wrath, in mercy stay. 
Lest I sink before its sway. 

2 Heal me, for my flesh is weak ; 
Heal me, for thy grace I seek ; 
This my only plea I make, 
Heal me for thy mercy's sake. 

3 Who, within the silent grave. 
Shall proclaim thy power to save? 
Lord ! my sinking soul reprieve ; 
Speak, and I shall rise and live. 

4 Lo ! he comes, he heeds my plea ; 
Lo ! he comes, the shadows flee ; 
Glory round me dawns once more ; 
Rise, my spirit, and adore. 

464 

1 Lord ! for ever at thy side 

Let my place and portion be ; 
Strip me of the robe of pride ; 
Clothe me with humility. 

2 Meekly may my soul receive 

All thy Spirit hath revealed ; 

Thou hast spoken — I believe. 

Though the prophecy were sealed.

3 Quiet as a weanM child. 

Weaned from the mother's breast, 
By no subtlety beguiled. 
On thy faithful word I rest. 

4 Saints ! rejoicing evermore, 

In the Lord Jehovah trust ; 
Him in all his ways adore. 
Wise and wonderful and just. 

465 

1 Father of eternal grace ! 

Glorify thyself in me ; 
Meekly beaming in my face 
May the world thine image see. 

2 Happy only in thy love. 

Poor, unfriended or unknown ; 
Fix my thoughts on things above, 
Stay my heart on thee alone. 

3 Humble, holy, all resigned 

To thy will — thy will be done ! 
Give me. Lord ! the perfect mind 
Of thy well-beloved Son. 

4 Counting gain and glory loss, 

May I tread the path he trod ; 
Die with Jesus on the cross, 
Rise, with him, to thee, my God I

1 Heavenly Father ! to whose eye 
Future things unfolded lie, 
Through the desert where I stray, 
Let thy counsels guide my way. 

2 Lord ! uphold me day by day, 
Shed a light upon my way ; 

Guide me through perplexing snares, 
Care for me in all my cares.

Only when the way is rough 
Let thy rod and staff impart 
Strength and courage to my heart.

Sought thy mercy-seat by prayer ; 
Mercy heard, and set him free ; 
Lord! that mercy came to me. 

3 Thou hast helped in every need ; 
This emboldens me to plead ; 
After so much mercy past. 
Canst thou let me sink at last? 

4 No ; I must maintain my hold ; 

'T is thy goodness makes me bold ; 

I can no denial take 

When I plead for Jesus' sake.

What to-morrow may betide 

Calmly to thy wisdom leave ;

Why should I the burden bear?

On a care beyond his own. 
Knows he 's neither strong nor wise, 

Fears to move a step alone. 
Let me thus with thee abide.

1 Chosen not for good in me, 
Wakened up from wrath to flee, 
Hidden in the Saviour's side, 
By the Spirit sanctified, 

Teach me, Lord ! on earth to show 
By my love how much I owe. 

2 Oft I walk beneath the cloud, 
Dark as midnight's gloomy shroud ; 
But when fear is at the height, 
Jesus comes, and all is light; 
Blessed Jesus ! bid me show 
Doubting saints how much I owe. 

3 Oft the nights of sorrow reign. 
Weeping, sickness, sighing, pain ; 
But a night thine anger burns, 
Morning comes, and joy returns ; 
God of comforts ! bid me show 
To thy poor how much I owe. 

4 When in flowery paths I tread, 
Oft by sin \ 'm captive led ; 
Oft I fall, but still arise, 
Jesus comes, the tempter flies ; 
Blessed Jesus ! bid me show 
Weary sinners all I owe. 



1 When this passing world is done. 
When has sunk yon glorious sun, 
When, from off" the mount of God, 
We review the path we 've trod, 
Then, Lord ! shall I fully know — 
Not till then — how much I owe ! 

2 When I hear the wicked call 
On the rocks and hills to fall. 
When I see them start and shrink 
On the fiery deluge brink, 
Then, Lord! shall I fully know — 
Not till then — how much I owe ! 

3 When I stand before the throne 
Clothed in beauty not my own. 
When I see thee as thou art. 
Love thee with unsinning heart, 
Then, Lord! shall I fully know — 
Not till then -how much I owe I 

1 When the praise of heaven I hear, 
Loud as thunders to the car, 
Loud as many waters' noise. 
Sweet as harps' melodious voice. 
Then, Lord ! shall I fully know- 
Not till then — h ow much I owe I

Sometimes a light surprises 

The Christian while he sings; 
It is the Lord, who rises 

With healing in his wings ; 
When comforts are declining, 

He grants the soul again 
A season of clear shining 

To cheer it after rain. 

In holy contemplation 

We sweetly then pursue 
The theme of God's salvation, 

And tind it ever new ; 
Set free from present so row, 

We cheerfully can say, 
Let the unknown to-morrow 

Bring with il what it may, 
212 



It can bring with it nothing 

But he will bear us through ; 
Who gives the lilies clothing 

Will clothe his people too ; 
Beneath the spreading heavens 

No creature but is fed ; 
And he who feeds the ravens 

Will give his children bread". 

Though vine nor fig tree neither 

Their wonted fruit should bear, 
Though all the fields should wither, 

Nor flocks nor herds be there; 
Yet God the same abiding. 

His praise shall tune my voice. 
For while in him confiding 

I cannot but rejoice.

Lord of life ! from thee ; 
In thee is life provided 

For all mankind, for me ; 
I know no death, Jesus ! 

Because I live in thee ; 
Thy death it is which frees us 

From death eternally.

Since, whatsoe'er it be, 
It makes no separation 
Between my T^rd and me ; 



If thou, my God and Teacher! 

Vouchsafe to be my own, 
Though poor, I shall be richer 

Than monarch on his throne. 

3 Lord ! with this truth impress me, 

And write it on my heart. 
To comfort, cheer and bless me, 

That thou my Saviour art ; 
Without thy love to guide me 

I should be wholly lost ; 
The floods would quickly hide me, 

On life's wide ocean tossed.

All plaintive I pour out my song, 

And stretch forth my hands unto God.

My hold on thy promise to keep, 
The billows more fiercely return, 
And plunge me again in the deep ;

And lead me to Jesus for peace,

My God ! to thee I leave the rest ; 

Thy will be done ! 

6 Renew my will from day to day ; 
Blend it with thine, and take away 
All that now makes it hard to say. 

Thy will be done ! 

7 Then when on earth I breathe no more 
The prayer oft mixed with tears before, 
I '11 sing upon a happier shore, 

Thy will be done !

1 Lo ! on a narrow neck of land 
'Twixt two unbounded seas I stand, 

Yet how insensible I 
A point of time, a moment's space, > 
Removes me to yon heavenly place, 

Or shuts me up in hell. 

2 O God ! my inmost soul convert. 
And deeply on my thoughtless heart 

Eternal things impress ; 
Give me to feel their solemn weight. 
And save me ere it be too late, 

Wake me to righteousness. 

3 Before me place in bright array 
The pomp of that tremendous day, 

When thou with clouds shalt come 



To judge the nations at thy bar ; 
And tell me. Lord ! shall I be there 
To meet a joyful doom ? 

4 Be this my one great business here, 
With holy trembling, holy fear. 

To make my calling sure ; 
Thine utmost counsel to fulfill, 
And suffer all thy righteous will, 

And to the end endure. 

5 Then, Saviour ! then my soul receive, 
Transported from this vale, to live 

And reign with thee above ; 
Where faith is sweetly lost in sight, 
And hope in full, supreme delight, 

And everlasting love.

1 Eternal Spirit ! we confess 

And sing the wonders of thy grace ; 
Thy power conveys our blessings down 
From God, the Father, and the Son. 

2 Enlightened by thy heavenly ray, 
Our shades and darkness turn to day ; 
Thine inward teachings make us know 
Our danger, and our refuge too. 

3 Thy power and glory work within, 
A.nd break the chains of reigning sin. 
Do our imperious lusts subdue, 

And form our wretched hearts anew. 

4 The troubled conscience knows thy voice. 
Thy cheering words awake our joys ; 
Thy words allay the stormy wind, 

And calm the surges of the mind. 



485 



1 Father of mercies, God of love! 
Send down thy Spirit from above ; 
Let me his sacred influence feel, 
To quicken, purify and heal. 

2 He is the source of every grace, 

Of light and life and holiness; 
216 



By him alone may I be taught 

And all my works in him be wrought. 

3 Oh, let thy Holy Spirit come 
And make my heart his constant home; 
There his abundant grace display, 
And lead me in a perfect way. 

486 

1 Sure the blest Comforter is nigh ; 

'T is he sustains my fainting heart; 
Else would my hope for ever die. 
And every cheering ray depart. 

2 Whene'er to call the Saviour mine 

With ardent wish my heart aspires, 
Can it be less than power divine 
That animates these strong desires? 

3 And when my cheerful hope can say, 

I love my God and taste his grace, 
Lord ! is it not thy blissful ray 
That brings this dawn of sacred peace? 

4 Let thy good Spirit in my heart 

For ever dwell, God of love 
And light and heavenly peace impart, 
Sweet earnest of the joys above.

1 Come, sacred Spirit ! from above, 
And fill the coldest heart with love ; 
Soften to flesh the flinty stone. 

And let thy Godlike power be known. 

2 Speak thou, and from the haughtiest eyes 
Shall floods of pious sorrow rise, 
While all their glowing souls are borne 
To seek that grace which now they scorn. 

3 Oh, let a holy flock await 
Numerous around thy temple gate, 
Each pressing on with zeal to be 
A living sacriflce to thee. 

4 In answer to our fervent cries 
Give us to see thy church arise ; 
Or if that blessing seem too great, 
Give us to mourn its low estate.

1 Stay, thou insulted Spirit ! stay, 

Though I have done thee such despite ; 
Cast not the sinner quite away, 
Nor take thine everlasting flight. 

2 Though I have most unfaithful been 

Of all who e'er thy grace received, 
Ten thousand times thy goodness seen. 
Ten thousand times thy goodness grieved, 

3 Yet oh, the chief of sinners spare, 

In honor of my great High Priest ; 
Nor in thy righteous anger swear 
I shall not see thy people's rest. 

4 Now, Lord ! my weary soul release, 

Uphold me with thy gracious hand ; 
Guide me into thy perfect peace. 
And bring me to the promised land.

1 How helpless guilty nature lies, 

Unconscious of its load I 
The heart, unchanged, can never rise 
To happiness and God. 

2 Can aught beneath a power divine 

The stubborn will subdue ? 
'T is thine, eternal Spirit ! thine, 
To form the heart anew. 

3 *T is thine the passions to recall, 

And upward bid them rise ; 
To make the scales of error fall 
From reason's darkened eyes ; 

4 To chase the shades of death away, 

And bid the sinner live ; 
A beam of heaven, a vital ray, 
'T is thine alone to give. 

5 Oh, change these wretched hearts of ours, 

And give them life divine ; 
Then shall our passions and our powers. 
Almighty Lord ! be thine. 

490 

1 AVhy should the children of a King 

Go mourning all their days? 
Great Comforter! descend and bring 
Some tokens of thy grace. 

2 Dost thou not dwell in all the saints 

And seal the heirs of heaven ? 
When wilt thou banish my complaints 
And show my sins forgiven? 
218 



3 Assure my conscience of her part 

In the Redeemer's blood ; 
And bear thy witness with my heart 
That I am born of God. 

4 Thou art the earnest of his love. 

The pledge of joys to come ; 
And thy soft wings, celestial Dove ! 
Will safe convey me home.

1 Enthroned on high, almighty Lord ! 

The Holy Ghost send down ; 
Fulfill in us thy faithful word. 
And all thy mercies crown. 

2 Though on our heads no tongues of fire 

Their wondrous powers impart, 
Grant, Saviour ! what we more desire, 
Thy Spirit in our heart, 

3 Spirit of life and light and love ! 

Thy heavenly influence give ; 
Quicken our souls, born from above, 
In Christ that we may live. 

4 To our benighted minds reveal 

The glories of his grace, 
And bring us where no clouds conceal 
The brightness of his face. 

5 His love within us shed abroad, 

Life's ever springing well. 
Till God in us and we in God 
In love eternal dwell.

Let rays of heavenly love 
Amid our gloom and darkness shine, 
And guide our souls above ! 

2 Draw with thy "still small voice" 

From every sinful way, 
And bid the mourning saint rejoice, 
Though earthly joys decay ; 

3 By thine inspiring breath 

Make every cloud of care. 
And e'en the gloomy vale of death, 
A smile of glory wear.

With love to all our race. 
Blest Comforter ! to us impart 
These blessings of thy grace.

And Jesus' love declare ; 
Oh, tell us of our heavenly home, 
And guide us safely there. 

2 Our unbelief remove 

By thine almighty breath ; 
Oh, work the M'ondrous work of love, 
The mighty work of faith. 

3 Come with resistless power, 

Come with almighty grace, 
Come with the long-expected shower, 
And fall upon this place. 



4 We know thou hast the power ; 

Oh, let that power be shown ; 
We know that this is mercy's hour ; 
Oh, make thy mercy known. 

5 Thy sceptre, Lord ! extend, 

Pity our deep distress ; 
Thou art the contrite sinner's Friend ; 
Thy waiting servants bless. 

6 We bless thee for thy grace 

And thine almighty power ; 
We bless thee for thy holy place 
And this accepted hour. 

494 

1 Lord God, the Holy Ghost I 

In this accepted hour. 
As on the day of Pentecost, 
Descend in all thy power. 

2 We meet with one accord 

In our appointed place. 
And wait the promise of our Lord, 
The Spirit of all grace. 

3 Like mighty rushing wind 

Upon the waves beneath. 
Move with one impulse every mind, 
One soul, one feeling, breathe. 

4 The young, the old, inspire 

With wisdom from above. 
And give us hearts and tongues of fire, 
To pray and praise and love.

A guide, a Comforter, bequeathed 
With us to dwell.

To teach, subdue ; 
All-powerful as the wind he came, 
As viewless too.

A willing guest, 
While he can find one humble heart 
Wherein to rest.

As breeze of even, 
That checks each fault, snd calms each fear, 
And speaks of heaven. 

5 And all the good that we possess, 

His gift we own ; 
Yea, every thought of holiness, 
And victory won.

Oh, make our hearts thy dwelling-place, 
And worthier thee !

Henceforth my chief desire shall be 

To dedicate myself to thee. 

2 Whate'er pursuits my time employ. 
One thought shall fill my soul with joy 



That silent, secret thought shall be 
That all my hopes are fixed on thee. 

3 Eenouncing every worldly thing, 

And safe beneath thy spreading wing, 

My sweetest thought henceforth shall be 

That all I want I find in thee.

Held dominion o'er my soul.

Bid my many woes depart. 

Heal my wounded, bleeding heart.

Reign supreme, and reign alone.

1 Faith is a living power from heaven 
Which grasx)s the promise God has given ; 
A trust that cannot be o'erthrown, 
Securely fixed on Christ alone. 

2 Faith finds in Christ whate'er we need 
To save and strengthen, guide and feed ; 
Strong in his grace, it joys to share 

His cross, in hope his crown to wear. 

3 Faith to the conscience whispers peace, 
And bids the mourner's sighing cease ; 
By faith the children's right we claim, 
And call upon our Father's name. 

4 Faith feels the Spirit's kindling breath 
In love and hope that conquer death ; 
Faith brings us to delight in God, 
And blesses e'en his smiting rod. 

5 Such faith in us, God ! implant, 

And to our prayers thy favor grant 

In Jesus Christ, thy saving Son, 

Who is our fount of health alone. 
226 



6 In him may every trusting soul 
Press onward to the heavenly goal. 
The blessedness no foes destroy, 
Eternal love and light and joy. 

506 

1 'T IS by the faith of joys to come 

We walk through deserts dark as night ; 
Till we arrive at heaven, our home, 
Faith is our guide and faith our light. 

2 The want of siglit she well supplies ; 

She makes the pearly gates appear ; 
Far into distant worlds she pries, 
And brings eternal glories near. 

3 Cheerful we tread the desert through, 

While faith inspi res a heavenly ray, 

Though lions roar and tempests blow, 

And rocks and dangers fill the way. 

4 So Abram, by divine command, 

Left his own home to walk with Grod ; 
His faith beheld the promised land, 
And fired his zeal along the road.

1 Author of faith, eternal Word, 

Whose Spirit breathes the active flame ! 
Faith, like its finisher and Lord, 
To-day, as yesterday, the same, 

2 To thee our humble hearts aspire, 

And ask the gift unspeakable ; 
Increase in us the kindled fire, 
In us the work of faith fulfill. 

3 By faith we know thee strong to save ; 

Save us, a present Saviour thou ! 

Whate'er we hope by faith we have ; 

Future and past subsisting now. 

4 To him that in thy name believes 

Eternal life with thee is given ; 
Into himself he all receives. 
Pardon and holiness and heaven. 

5 The things unknown to feeble sense. 

Unseen by reason's glimm'ring ray, 
With strong commanding evidence, 
Their heavenly origin display. 

6 Faith lends its realizing light ; 

The clouds disperse, the shadows fly ; 
Th' Invisible appears in sight. 
And God is seen by mortal eye. 



1 By faith in Christ I walk with God, 

With heaven, my journey's end, in view ; 
Supported by his stafi" and rod, 
My road is safe and pleasant too. 

2 Though snares and dangers throng my path, 

And earth and liell my course withstand 
I triumph over all by faith, 
Guarded by his almighty hand. 

3 The wilderness affords no food, 

But God for my support prepares, 
Provides me every needful good, 
And frees my soul from wants and cares. 

4 With him sweet converse I maintain ; 

Great as he is, I dare be free ; 
I tell him all my grief and pain, 
And he reveals his love to me. 

5 Some cordial from his word he brings, 

Whene'er my feeble spirit faints; 
At once my soul revives and sings, 
And yields no more to sad complaints. 

6 I pity all that worldlings talk 

Of pleasures that will quickly end ; 
Be this my choice, Lord ! to walk [Friend. 
With thee, my Guide, my Guard, my

1 Had I the tongues of Greeks and Jews, 
And nobler speech than angels use, 

If love be absent, I am found, 

Like tinkling brass, an empty sound. 

2 Were I inspired to preach, and tell 
All that is done in heaven and hell, 
Or could my faith the world remove. 
Still I am nothing without love. 

WILTSHIRE 



3 Should I distribute all my store 

To feed the hungry, clothe the poor. 
Or give my bod)' to the flame. 
To gain a martyr's glorious name, 

4 If love to God and love to men 
Be absent, all my hopes are vain ; 
Nor tongues, nor gifts, nor fiery zeal 
The work of love can e'er fulfill. 




Happy the heart where graces reign, 
Where love inspires the breast; 

Love is the brightest of the train, 
And strengthens all the rest. 

Knowledge, alas ! 't is all in vain. 

And all in vain our fear; 
Our stubborn sins will fight and reign 

If love be absent there. 
228 



3 'T is love that makes our cheerful feet 

In swift obedience move ; 
The devils know and tremble too. 
But Satan cannot love. 

4 This is the grace that lives and sings 

When faith and hope shall cease; 
'T is this shall strike our joyful strings 
In the sweet realms of bliss.

To draw thee from the skies.

1 Awake, our souls ! away, our fears ! 

Let every trembling thought be gone ; 
Awake, and run the heavenly race, 
And put a cheerful courage on. 

2 True, 't is a strait and thorny road, 

And mortal spirits tire and faint ; 
But they forget the mighty God 

Who feeds the strength of every saint— 

J Tliee, mighty God ! whose matchless power 
Is ever new and ever young, 
And firm endures while endless years 
Their everlasting circles run. 

1 From thee, the overflowing Spring, 

Our souls shall drink a fresh supply ; 

While such as trust their native strength 

Shall melt away and droop and die. 

5 cJwift as an eagle cuts the air 

We '11 mount aloft to thine abode ; 
On wings of love our souls shall fly, 
Nor tire amid the heavenly road.

Stand up, my soul ! shake off" thy fears, 
And gird the gospel armor on ; 

March to the gates of endless joy. 

Where Jesus thy great Captain 's gone. 

2 Hell and thy sins resist thy course, 

But hell and sin are vanquished foes ; 
Ihy Jesus nailed them to the cross, 
And sung th** triumph when he rose. 
230 



3 What though thy inward lusts rebel ? 

'T is but a struggling gasp for life ; 
The weapons of victorious grace 

Shall slay thy sins and end the strife. 

4 Then let my soul march boldly on, 

Press forward to the heavenly gate ; 
There peace and joy eternal reign, 
And glitt'ring robes for conqu'rors wait. 

5 There shall I wear a starry crown. 

And triumph in almighty grace ; 
While all the armies of the skies 
Join in my glorious Leader's praise. 

516 

1 Who shall the Lord's elect condemn? 

'T is God that justifies their souls ; 
And mercy, like a mighty stream. 
O'er all their sins divinely rolls. 

2 Who shall adjudge the saints to hell ? 

'T is Christ who suffered in their stead, 
And the salvation to fulfill 

Behold him rising from the dead. 

3 He lives ! he lives, and reigns above, 

For ever interceding there ; 
Who shall divide us from his love. 
Or what shall tempt us to despair ? 

4 Not all that men on earth can do. 

Nor powers on high nor powers below, 
Shall cause his mercy to remove. 
Or wean our hearts from Christ, our love.

And press with vigor on ; 
A heavenly race demands thy zeal,

Hold thee in full survey ; 
Forget the steps already trod, 
And onward urge thy way.

That calls thee from on high ; 
T is his own hand presents the prize 
To thine aspiring eye.

A follower of the Lamb, 
And shall I fear to own his cause 
Or blush to speak his name ?

On flowery beds of ease, 
While others fought to win the prize, 
And sailed through bloody seas ? 

3 Are there no foes for me to face ? 

Must I not stem the flood? 
Is this dark world a friend to grace, 
To help me on to God ?

Increase my courage. Lord !

Oh, lowly is the loftiness

How boundless is thy store ;

How keep the shining way. 
And not more tremblingly adore, 
And not more humbly pray ?

Oh, make that blessing mine !

There spreads a region fair; 
Give me to live that higher life. 
And breathe that heavenly air.

Then shall my soul her conflict cease, 
And find a heaven within.

Of lowly thoughts and simple ways 
I '11 build a house for thee.

But thou, my heavenly Guest? 

Let no one have it, then, but thee, 

And let it be thy rest.

1 Behold thy waiting servant, Lord ! 

Devoted to thy fear ; 
Remember and confirm thy word, 
For all my hopes are there. 

2 Hast thou not sent salvation down, 

And promised quickening grace? 
Does not my heart address thy throne ? 
And yet thy love delays. 

3 Mine eyes for thy salvation fail ; 

Oh, bear thy servant up ; 
Nor let the scoffing lips prevail 
That dare reproach my hope. 

4 Didst thou not raise my faith, O Lord ? 

Then let thy truth appear ; 
Saints shall rejoice in my reward. 
And trust as well as fear.

Might dwell upon my mind ; 
Thence I derive a quickening power. 
And daily peace I find. 

2 To meditate thy precepts, Lord ! 

Shall be my sweet employ ; 
My soul shall ne'er forget thy word ; 
Thy word is all my joy. 

3 How would I run in thy commands 

If thou my heart discharge 



From sin and Satan's hateful chains, 
And set my feet at large ! 

4 My lips with courage shall declare 

Thy statutes and thy name ; [hear, 

I '11 speak thy word, though kings should 
Nor yield to sinful shame.

And brings the truth to sight ; 
Precepts and promises afi^ord

Majestic, like the sun ; 
It gives a light to every age — 
It gives, but borrows none. 

3 The hand that gave it still supplies 

The gracious light and heat ; 
His truths upon the nations rise — 
They rise, but never set. 

4 Let everlasting thanks be thine 

For such a bright display 
As makes a world of darkness shine 
With beams of heavenly day. 

5 IMy soul rejoices to pursue 

The steps of him I love, 
Till glory breaks upon my view 
In brighter "vorlds above.

1 Oh, how I love thy holy law ! 

'T is daily my delight ; 
And thence my meditations draw 
Divine advice by night. 

2 My waking eyes prevent the day 

To meditate thy word ; 
My soul with longing melts away 
To hear thy gospel, Lord ! 

3 How doth thy word my heart engage ! 

How well employ my tongue ! 
And in my tiresome pilgrimage 
Yields me a heavenly song. 

4 Am I a stranger or at home ? 

'T is my perpetual feast ; 
Not honey dropping from the comb 
So much allures the taste. 

5 No treasures so enrich the mind, 

Nor shall thy word be sold 

For loads of silver well refined. 

Nor heaps of choicest gold.

Thy promises of grace 
Are pillars to support my hope, 
And there I write thy praise. 



536 

1 Blkssed are the souls that hear and know 

The gospel's joyful sound ; 
Peace shall attend the path they go. 
And light their steps surround. 

2 Their joy shall bear their spirits up 

Through their Redeemer's name ; 
His righteousness exalts their hope. 
Nor Satan dares condemn. 

3 The Lord, our glory and defence, 

Strength and salvation gives ; 
Israel ! thy King for ever reigns, 
Thy God for ever lives. 

537 

1 liORD ! I have made thy word my choice, 

My lasting heritage ; 
There shall my noblest powers rejoice, 
My warmest thoughts engage. 

2 I '11 read the hist'ries of thy love, 

And keep thy laws in sight, 
While through the promises I rove 
With ever-fresh delight, 

3 'T is a broad land of wealth unknown, 

Where springs of life arise ; 
Seeds of immortal bliss are sown. 
And hidden glory lies ; 

4 The best relief that mourners have, 

It makes our sorrows blest ;

1 How precious is the book divine 

By inspiration given ! 
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine 
To guide our souls to heaven. 

2 It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts 

In this dark vale of tears ; 
Life, light and joy it still imparts, 
And quells our rising fears. 

3 This lamp through all the tedious night 

Of life shall guide our way, 
Till we behold the clearer light 
Of an eternal day. 

540 

1 How shall the young secure their hearts 

And guard their lives from sin ? 
Thy word the choicest rules imparts 
To keep the conscience clean. 

2 When once it enters to the mind, 

It spreads such light abroad 
The meanest souls instruction find, 
And raise their thoughts to God. 

3 'T is, like the sun, a heavenly light. 

That guides us all the day, 
And through the dangers of the night 
A lamp to lead our way. 

4 Thy precepts make me truly wise ; 

I hate the sinner's road ; 
16 



I hate my own vain thoughts that rise, 
But love thy law, my God ! 

5 Thy word is everlasting truth ; 
How pure is every page ! 
That holy book shall guide our youth 
And well support our age. 



541 



1 Laden with guilt and full of fears, 

I fly to thee, my Lord ! 
And not a glimpse of hope appears 
But in thy written word. 

2 The volume of my Father's grace 

Does all my grief assuage ; 
Here I behold my Saviour's face 
Almost in every page. 

3 Here consecrated water flows 

To quench my thirst of sin ; 
Here the fair tree of knowledge grows ; 
No danger dwells therein. 

4 This is the judge that ends the strife 

Where wit and reason fail ; 
My guide to everlasting life 
Through all this gloomy vale. 

5 Oh, may thy counsels, mighty God ! 

My roving feet command. 
Nor I forsake the happy road 
That leads to thy right hand.

Makes his eternal counsels known ;

A brighter world beyond the skies; 

Here shines the light which guides our way 

From earth to realms of endless day.

Thy head, my Saviour and my Lord ! 

Thy hands have brought salvation down, 

And writ the blessings in thy word. 

2 In vain the trembling conscience seeks 

Some solid ground to rest upon ; 
With long despair the spirit breaks 
Till we apply to Christ alone. 

3 How well thy blessed truths agree ! 

How wise and holy thy commands I 
Thy promises, how firm they be ! 

How firm our hope, our comfort stands 1 

4 Should all the forms that men devise 

Assault my ftiith with treacherous art, 
I 'd call them vanity and lies. 
And bind the gospel to my heart.

1 Grace ! 't is a charming sound, 

Harmonious to mine ear ; 
Heaven with the echo shall resound, 
And all the earth shall hear. 

2 Grace first contrived the way 

To save rebellious man, 
And all the steps that grace display 
Which drew the wondrous plan.

3 Grace led my wandering feet 

To tread the heavenly road, 
And new supplies each hour I meet 
While pressing on to God. 

4 Grace all the work shall crown 

Through everlasting days ; 
It lays in heaven the topmost stone, 
And well deserves the praise. 



S.M. 




1 Behold, the morning sun 

Begins his glorious way ; 
His beams through all the nations run, 
And life and light convey. 

2 But where the gospel comes 

II spreads diviner light ; 
It calls dead sinners from their tombs, 
And gives the blind their sight. 

3 How perfect is thy word, 

And all thy judgments just I 



For ever sure thy promise. Lord 1 
And men securely trust. 

4 My gracious God ! how plain 

Are thy directions given ! 
Oh, may I never read in vain, 
But find the path to heaven. 

5 I hear thy word with love. 

And I would fain obey ; 
Send thy good Spirit from above 
To guide me, lest I stray.

1 Ho, every one that thirsts I draw nigh ; 

T is God invites the fallen race ; 
Mercy and free salvation buy, 
Buy wine and milk and gospel grace. 

2 Nothing ye in exchange shall give, 

Leave all you have and are behind ; 
Freely the gift of God receive, 
Pardon and peace in Jesus find. 

3 Come to the living waters, come ; 

Sinners, obey your Maker's call ; 

Return, ye weary wanderers, home. 

And find my grace is free for all. 

547 

1 Return, wanderer, return. 

And seek an injured Father's face ; 

Those warm desires that in thee burn 

Were kindled by reclaiming grace. 

2 Return, wanderer, return. 

And seek a Father's melting heart; 
His pitying eyes thy grief discern. 
His hand shall heal thine inward smart. 

3 Return, wanderer, return, 

Thy Saviour bids thy spirit live ; 
Go to his bleeding feet, and learn 
How freely Jesus can forgive. 

4 Return, wanderer, return, 

And wipe away the falling tear ; 
'T is God who says, " No longer mourn," 
'T is mercy's voice invites thee near. 

548 

1 Come, weary souls with sin distressed, 
The Saviour offers heavenly rest; 
244 



The kind, the gracious call obey, 
And cast your gloomy fears away. 

2 Here mercy's boundless ocean flows 

To cleanse your guilt and heal your woes ; 
Pardon and life and endless peace ; 
How rich the gift, how free the grace ! 

3 Lord ! we accept with thankful heart 
The hope thy gracious words impart ; 
We come, with trembling, yet rejoice, 
And bless the kind inviting voice. 

4 Dear Saviour! let thy powerful love 
Confirm our faith, our fears remove ; 
Oh, sweetly reign in every breast, 
And guide us to eternal rest. 

549 

1 Why will ye waste on trifling cares 
That life which God's compassion spares, 
While in the various range of thought 
The one thing needful is forgot? 

2 Shall God invite you from above ? 
Shall Jesus urge his dying love ? 

Shall troubled conscience give you pain, 
And all these pleas unite in vain? 

3 Not so your eyes will always view 
Those objects which you now pursue ; 
Not so will heaven and hell appear 
When death's decisive hour is near. 

4 Almighty God 1 thy grace impart ; 
Fix deep conviction on each heart ; 
Nor let us waste on trifling cares 
That life which thy compassion spares.

1 Come hither, all ye weary souls, 

Ye heavy-laden sinners, come ; 
I '11 give you rest from all your toils. 
And raise you to my heavenly home, 

2 They shall find rest that learn of me ; 

I 'm of a meek and lowly mind ; 
But passion rages like the sea. 
And pride is restless as the wind. 

3 Blessed is the man whose shoulders take 

My yoke, and bear it with delight ; 
My yoke is easy to his neck. 
My grace shall make the burden light 

4 Jesus ! we come at thy command. 

With faith and hope and humble zeal. 
Resign our spirits to thy hand, 
To mould and guide us at thy will. 

551 

1 Behold a Stranger at the door ! 

He gently knocks, has knocked before, 
Has waited long, is waiting still ; 
You treat no other friend so ill. 

2 Oh, lovely attitude ! he stands 
With melting heart and laden hands ; 
Oh, matchless kindness ! and he shows 
This matchless kindness to his foes. 

3 But will he prove a friend indeed? 
He will, the very friend you need — 
The Fi iend of sinners ; yes, 't is he, 
With garments dyed on Calvary. 



^2=izr:

4 Rise, touched with gratitude divine, 
Turn out his enemy and thine, 
That soul destroying monster sin, 
And let the heavenly Stranger in. 

5 Admit him ere his anger burn, 
His feet, departed, ne'er return ; 
Admit him, or the hour 's at hand 
When at his door denied you '11 stand. 

552 

1 Life is the time to serve the Lord, 
The time t' ensure the great reward ; 
And while the light holds out to burn 
The vilest sinner may return. 

2 Life is the hour that God hath given 
T' escape from hell and fly to heaven, 
The day of grace ; and mortals may 
Secure the blessings of the day. 

3 The living know that they must die, 
But all the dead forgotten lie ; 

Their memory and their sense are gone^ 
Alike unknowing and unknown. 

4 Then what my thoughts design to do, 
My hands, with all your might pursue ; 
Since no device nor work is found, 

Nor faith nor hope, beneath the ground. 

5 There are no acts of pardon passed 
In the cold grave to which we haste. 
But darkness, death and long despair 
Reign in eternal silence there.

What Hght and joy those leaves afford 

To souls benighted and distressed ! 
Thy precepts guide ray doubtful way, 
Thy fear forbids my feet to stray, 

Thy promise leads my heart to rest. 

2 From the discoveries of thy law 
The perfect rules of life I draw ; 

These are my study and delight ; 
Not honey so invites the taste. 
Nor gold that hath the furnace passed 

Appears so pleasing to the sight.

And gives a free but large reward. 

4 Who knows the errors of his thoughts?

Lo ! your Maker prostrate lies ; 
On the bloody tree behold him ; 
Hear him cry, before he dies : 

" It is finished !" 
Sinner, will not this suffice? 

5 Lo ! the incarnate God ascended 

Pleads the merits of his blood ; 
Venture on him, venture wholly 
Let no other trust intrude ; ' 

None but Jesus 
Can do helpless sinners good.

Nor of fitness fondly dream ; 
All the fitness he requireth 
Is to feel your need of him ; 

This he gives you ; 
'T is the Spirit's rising beam.

Lost and ruined by the fall ;

You will never come at all.

1 Like Noah's weary dove 

That soared the earth around, 
But not a resting-place above 
The cheerless waters found, 

2 Oh, cease, my wandering soul, 

On restless wing to roam ; 
All the wide world, to either pole. 
Has not for thee a home. 

3 Behold the ark of God, 

Behold the open door ; 
Hasten to gain that dear abode. 
And rove, my soul, no more. 

4 There safe thou shalt abide, 

There sweet shall be thy rest. 
And every longing satisfied. 
With full salvation blessed.

1 Come, humble sinner, in whose breast 

A thousand thoughts revolve ; 
Come, with your guilt and fear oppressed 
And make this last resolve : 

2 " I '11 go to Jesus, though my sin 

Hath like a mountain rose ; 
I know his courts ; I '11 enter in, 
Whatever may oppose. 

3 " Prostrate I '11 lie before his throne, 

And there my guilt confess ; 
I '11 tell him I 'm a wretch undone 
Without his sovereign grace. 

4 " I '11 to the gracious King approach 

Whose sceptre pardon gives ; 
Perhaps he may command my touch, 
And then the suppliant lives. 

5 " Perhaps he will admit my plea, 

Perhaps will hear my prayer ; 
But if I perish, I will pray, 
And perish only there. 

6 " I can but perish if I go, 

I am resolved to try ; 
For if I stay away, I know 
I must for ever die." 



566 

1 Ye wretched, hungry, starving poor. 

Behold a royal feast, 
Where mercy spreads her bounteous store 
For every humble guest. 

2 See, Jesus stands with open arms. 

He calls, he bids you come ; 
Guilt holds you back, and fear alarm? ; 
But see, there yet is room — 

3 Room in the Saviour's bleeding heart ; 

There love and pity meet ; 
Nor will he bid the soul depart 
That trembles at his feet. 

4 Oh, come, and with his children taste 

The blessings of his love, 
While hope attends the sweet repast 
Of nobler joys above. 

5 There, with united heart and voice. 

Before the eternal throne, 
Ten thousand thousand souls rejoice 
In ecstasies unknown. 

6 And yet ten thousand thousand more 

Are welcome still to come ; 
Ye longing souls, the grace adore, 
Approach, there yet is room.

1 I'raise waits in Zion, Lord ! for thee ; 

There shall our vows be paid ; 
Tiiou hast an ear when sinners pray ; 
All flesh shall seek thine aid. 

2 Lord ! our iniquities prevail, 

But pard'ning grace is thine, 
And thou wilt grant us power and skill 
To conquer every sin. 

3 Blest are the men whom thou wilt choose 

To bring them near thy face. 
Give them a dwelling in thy house 
To feast upon thy grace. 

4 In answering what thy church requests 

Thy truth and terror shine, 
And works of dreadful righteousness 
Fulfill thy kind design. 

5 Thus shall the wondering nations see 

The Lord is good and just. 
And distant islands fly to thee, 
And make thy name their trust. 

568 

1 Arse, O King of grace! arise, 

And enter to thy rest; 
Lo 1 thy church waits with longing eyes 
Thus to be owned and blest. 

2 Enter with all thy glorious train, 

Thy Spirit and thy word ; 
All that the ark did once contain 
Could no such grace afibrd. 
254 



3 Here, mighty God ! accept our vows ; 

Here let thy praise be spread ; 

Bless the provisions of thy house, 

An.d fill thy poor with bread. 

4 Here let the Son of David reign. 

Let God's Anointed shine ; 
Justice and truth his court maintain 
With love and power divine. 

5 Here let him hold a lasting throne ; 

And as his kingdom grows. 
Fresh honors shall adorn his crown, 
And shame confound his foes. 

569 

1 On, where are kings and empires now 

Of old that went and came ? 
But, Lord ! thy church is praying yet, 
A thousand years the same. 

2 We mark her goodly battlements 

And her foundations strong ; 
We hear within the solemn voice 
Of her unending song. 

3 For not like kingdoms of the world 

Thy holy church, God I 
Though earthquake shocks are thieutening 
her 
And tempests are abroad, 

4 Unshaken as eternal hills, 

Immovable she stands, 
A mountain that shall fill the earth, 
A house not made by hands.

3 There shall I offer my requests, 

And see thy beauty still, 
Shall hear thy messages of love, 
x\nd there inquire thy will. 

4 When troubles rise and storms appear, 

There may his children hide ; 
God has a strong pavilion where 
He makes my soul abide. 

5 Now shall my head be lifted high 

Above my foes around, 
And songs of joy and victory 
Within thy temple sound.

1 My soul, how lovely is the place 

To which thy God resorts ! 
'T is heaven to see his smiling face, 
Though in his earthly courts. 

2 There the great Monarch of the skies 

His saving power displays, 
And light breaks in upon our eyes 
AVith kind and quickening rays. 

3 With his rich gifts the heavenly Dove 

Descends and fills the place. 
While Christ reveals his wondrous love 
And sheds abroad his grace. 

4 There, mighty God! thy words declare 

The secrets of thy will. 
And still we seek thy mercy there, 
And sing thy praises sfill.

1 O Lord of hosts ! how lovely is 

The place where thou dost dwell ! 
The tabernacles of thy grace 
In pleasantness excel. 

2 My soul doth long, yea, even faint, 

Jehovah's courts to see ; 
My heart and flesh are crying out, 
living God ! for thee. 

3 Blest all who dwell within thy house ; 

They ever give thee praise ; 
And blest the man w^hose strength thou art, 
In whose heart are thy ways ; 

4 Who, passing on through Baca's vale, 

Do make of it a well ; 
And copious rains descending there 
The pools with water fill. 

6 So they from strength unwearied go 
Still forward unto strength ; 
And they in Zion shall appear 
Before the Lord at length. 



571 



J The Lord of glory is my light, 
And my salvation too ; 
God is my strength, nor will I fear 
Wha* all my foes can do. 

2 One privilege my heart desires ; 
Oh, grant me an abode 
Among the churches of thy saints, 
The temples of my God.

My friends devoutly say, 
" In Zion let us all appear, 
And keep the solemn day " ! 

2 I love her gates, I love the road, 

The church, adorned with grace. 
Stands like a palace built for God 
To show his milder face. 

3 Up to her courts with joys unknown 

The holy tribes repair; 

HENDON. 



The Son of David holds his throne 
And sits in judgment there. 

4 Peace be within this sacred place, 

And joy a constant guest ; 
With holy gifts and heavenly grace 
Be her attendants blest 

5 My soul shall pray for Zion still 

While life or breath remains ; 
There my best friends, my kindred dwell, 
There God, my Saviour, reigns.

When within the veil I meet

Touch my lips, unloose my tongue.

With his own precious blood.

Her walls before thee stand, 
Dear as the apple of thine eye, 
And graven on thy hand.

My voice or hands deny. 
These hands let useful skill forsake, 
This voice in silence die.

For her my prayers ascend ; 
To her my cares and toils be given 

Till toils and cares shall end. 

Beyond my highest joy 
I prize her heavenly w^ays. 

Her sweet communion, solemn vows, 
Her hymns of love and praise. 

Sure as thy truth shall last, 

To Zion shall be given 
The brightest glories earth can yield. 

And brighter bliss of heaven.

And there our vows and honors pay.

Adorned with wondrous grace, 

And walls of strength embrace thee round ; 
In thee our tribes appear 
To pray, to praise and hear 

The sacred gospel's joyful sound. 

3 There David's greater Son 
Has fixed his royal throne ; 

He sits for grace and judgment there ; 

HARWOOD. 



He bids the saint be glad. 
He makes the sinner sad 
And humble souls rejoice with fear. 

4 May peace attend thy gate, 
And joy within thee wait. 

To bless the soul of every guest ; 
The man that seeks thy peace, 
And wishes thine increase, 

A thousand blessings on him rest! 

5 My tongue repeats her vows: 
" Peace to this sacred house !" 

For there my friends and kindred dwell ; 
And since my glorious God 
Makes thee his blest abode. 

My soul shall ever love thee well.

1 Great Lord of all thy churches ! hear 
Thy ministers' and people's prayer ; 
Perfumed by thee, oh may it rise 
Like fragrant incense to the skies. 

2 May every pastor from above 

Be new inspired with zeal and love 
To watch thy flock, thy flock to feed, 
And sow with care the precious seed. 

3 Revive thy churches with thy grace ; 
Heal all our breaches, grant us peace ; 
Rouse us from sloth, our hearts inflame 
With ardent zeal for Jesus' name. 

4 May young and old thy word receive. 
Dead sinners hear thy voice and live, 
The wounded conscience healing find, 
And joy refresh each drooping mind. 

5 May aged saints matured with grace 
Abound in fruits of holiness; 

And when transplanted to the skies. 
May younger in their stead arise. 

Thus we our suppliant voices raise. 

And, weeping, sow tlie seed of praise,

In humble hope that thou wilt hear 
Thy ministers' and people's prayer.

1 Lord ! pour thy spirit from on high. 

And thine ordained servants bless ; 
Graces and gifts to each supply, 

And clothe thy priests with righteousness. 

2 Within thy temple when they stand 

To teach the truth as taught by thee, 
Saviour ! like stars in thy right hand 
Let all thy church's pastors be. 

3 Wisdom and zeal and love impart, 

Firmness and meekness from above, 
To bear thy people in their heart. 
And love the souls whom thou dost love ; 

4 To love and pray and never faint. 

By day and night their guard to keep, 
To warn the sinner, form the saint. 
To feed thy lambs and tend thy sheep. 

5 So, when their work is finished here, 

They may in hope their charge resign ; 
So, when their Master shall appear. 
They may with crowns of glory shine.

1 What though the arm of conqu'ring death 

Does God's own house invade ? 
What though the prophet and the priest 
Be numbered with the dead ? 

2 Though earthly shepherds dwell in dust, 

The aged and the young, 
The watchful eye in darkness closed. 
And mute th' instructive tongue, 

3 Th' eternal Shepherd still survives. 

New comfort to impart ; 
His eye still guides us, and his voice 
Still animates our heart. 

4 " Lo, I am with you !" saith the Lord ; 

Thy church shall safe abide. 
For thou wilt ne'er forsake thine own 
Whose souls in thee confide.

1 Christ and his cross is all our theme ; 

The mysteries that we speak 
Are scandal in the Jews' esteem, 
And folly to the Greek. 

2 But souls enlightened from above 

With joy receive the word ; 
They see what wisdom, power and love 
Shine in their dying Lord. 



3 The vital savor of his name 

Restores their fainting breath, 
But unbelief perverts the same 
To guilt, despair and death. 

4 Till God diffuse his graces down 

Like showers of heavenly rain, 
In vain Apollos sows the ground, 
And Paul may plant in vain. 

589 

1 Let Zion's watchmen all awake 

And take th' alarm they give. 
Now let them from the mouth of God 
Their solemn charge receive. 

2 'T is not a cause of small import 

The pastor's care demands. 
But what might fill an angel's heart. 
And filled a Saviour's hands. 

3 They watch for souls for whom the Lord 

Did heavenly bliss forego — 
For souls that must for ever live 
In rapture or in woe. 

4 All to the great tribunal haste, 

Th' account to render there ; 
And shouldst thou strictly mark our faults, 
Lord ! how should we appear "^ 

5 May they that Jesus whom they preach, 

Their own Redeemer, see, 
And watch thou daily o'er their souls, 
That they may watch for thee.

Nor shall the glowing flame expire 
When nature droops her sickening fire ; 
Then shall they meet in realms above, 
A heaven of joy, a heaven of love.

1 Behold, how good and pleasant. 

And how becoming well, 

Where brethren all united 

In peace together dwell ! 

2 'T is like the precious ointment 

That on the head did flow, 



Which down the beard of Aaron 
Did o'er his vesture go. 

3 Like dews which on Mount Hermon 
And Zion's hill descend ; 
There God commands the blessing, 
Life that shall never end.

1 Come, let us join our friends above 

That have obtained the prize, 
And on the eagle wings of love 
To joys celestial rise. 

2 Let all the saints terrestrial sing 

With those to glory gone, 
For all the servants of our King, 
In earth and heaven, are one. 

3 One family we dwell in him, 

One church above, beneath, 
Though now divided by the stream, 
The narrow stream, of death. 

4 One army of the living God, 

To his command we bow ; 
Part of his host have crossed the flood, 
And part are crossing now. 

5 Ten thousand to their endless home 

This solemn moment fly, 
And we are to the margin come, 
And we expect to die. 

6 Oh, that we now might grasp our Guide ! 

Oh, that the word were given I 
Come, Lord of hosts! the waves divide. 
And land us all in heaven. 



2 When each can feel his brother's sigh. 

And with him bear a part, 
When sorrow flows from eye to eye. 
And joy from heart to heart. 

3 When love, in one delightful stream, 

Through every bosom flows, 
When union sweet and dear esteem 
In every action glows. 

4 Love is the golden chain that binds 

The happy souls above. 
And he 's an heir of heaven that fimls 
His bosom glow with love. 

596 

1 Happy the souls to Jesus joined. 

And saved by grace alone ; 
Walking in all thy ways, we find 
Our heaven on earth begun. 

2 The church triumphant in thy love, 

Their mighty joys we know ; 
They sing the Lamb in hymns above, 
And we in hymns below. 

3 Thee in thy glorious realm they praise, 

And bow before tliy throne ; 
We in the kingdom of thy grace ; 
The kingdoms are but one. 

4 The holy to the holiest leads ; 

From thence our spirits rise , 

And he that in thy statutes treads 

Shall meet thee in the skies. 



595 



How sweet, how heavenly, is the sight 
When those that love the Lord 

In one another's peace delight, 
And so fulfill his word!

1 Blest be the tie that binds 

Our hearts in Christian love ; 
The fellowship of kindred minds 
Is like to that above. 

2 Before our Father's throne 

We pour our ardent prayers ; 
Our fears, our hopes, our aims, are one, 
Our comforts and our cares. 

3 We share our mutual woes, 

Our mutual burdens bear, 
And often for each other flows 
The sympathizing tear. 



GERAR. 



4 When we asunder part, 

It gives us inward pain ; 
But we shall still be joined in heart, 
And hope to meet again. 

5 This glorious hope revives 

Our courage by the way. 
While each in expectation lives, 
And longs to see the day. 

6 From sorrow, toil and pain 

And sin we shall be free, 
And perfect love and friendship reign 
Through all eternity. 



S.M. 




1 Blest are the sons of peace 

Wh )se hearts and hopes are one. 
Whose kind designs to serve and please 
Through all their actions run. 

2 Blest is the pious house 

Where zeal and friendship meet; 
Their songs of praise, their mingled vows, 
Make their communion sweet. 



3 Thus when on Aaron's head 

They poured the rich perfume, 
The oil through all his raiment spread, 
And pleasure filled the room. 

4 Thus on the heavenly hills 

The saints are blest above. 
Where joy, like morning dew, distils. 
And all the air is love.

1 Father of mercies ! send thy grace, 

All powerful, from above, 
To form in our obedient souls 
The image of thy love. 

2 Oh, may our sympathizing breasts 

That generous pleasure know, 
Kindly to share in others' joy, 
And weep for others' woe. 

3 When the most helpless sons of grief 

In low distress are laid. 
Soft be our hearts their pains to feel. 
And swift our hands to aid. 

i So Jesus looked on dying men 
When throned above the skies, 
And midst the embraces of his God 
He felt compassion rise. 

6 On wings of love the Saviour flew 
To raise us from the ground. 
And made the richest of his blood 
A balm for every wound. 

600 

1 Jicsus, our Lord ! how rich thy grace ! 

Thy bounties how complete ! 

How shall we count the matchless sum ? 

How pay the mighty debt? 
268 



2 High on a throne of radiant light 

Dost thou exalted shine ; 
What can our poverty bestow. 
When all the worlds are thine? 

3 But thou hast brethren here below, 

The partners of thy grace. 
And wilt confess their humble names 
Before thy Father's face. 

4 In them thou mayst be clothed and fed 

And visited and cheered. 
And in their accents of distress 
Our Saviour's voice is heard. 

601 

1 On, still in accents sweet and strong 

Sounds forth the ancient word : 
" More reapers for white harvest fields, 
More laborers for the Lord." 

2 We hear the call ; in dreams no more 

In selfish ease we lie, 
But girded for our Father's work. 
Go forth beneath his sky. 

3 Where prophets' word and maityrs' blood 

And prayers of saints were so-vn. 
We, to their labors entering in. 
Would reap where they have jsirown.

1 Jesus ! and shall it ever be, 

A mortal man ashamed of thee ? 
Ashamed of thee, whom angels praise. 
Whose glories shine through endless days? 

2 Ashamed of Jesus ! sooner far 
Let evening blush to own a star ; 
He sheds the beams of light divine 
O'er this benighted soul of mine. 

3 Ashamed of Jesus ! just as soon 
Let midnight be ashamed of noon ; 
'T is midnight with my soul till he, 
Bright Morning Star! bid darkness flee. 

BISHOP. 



4 Ashamed of Jesus ! that dear Friend 
On whom my hopes of heaven depend 1 
No ; when I blush, be this my shame, 
That I no more revere his name. 

5 Ashamed of Jesus ! yes, I may, 
When I 've no guilt to wash away, 
No tear to wipe, no good to crave. 
No fears to quell, no soul to save. 

6 Till then — nor is my boasting vain — 
Till then I boast a Saviour slain ; 
And oh, may this my glory be. 
That Christ is not ashamed of me. 




1 Go, labor on ; spend and be spent, 

Thy joy to do the Father's will ; 
It is the way the Master went ; 
Should not the servant tread it still ? 

2 Go, labor on ; 't is not for naught ; 

Thine earthly loss is heavenly gain; 

Men heed thee, love thee, praise thee not 

The Master praises — what are men? 



3 Go, labor on ; enough, while here. 

If he shall praise thee, if he deign 
Thy willing heart to mark and cheer ; 
No toil for him shall be in /ain. 

4 Toil on, and in thy toil rejoice ; 

For toil comes rest, for exile home ; 
Soon shalt thou hear the Bridegroom's a oice, 
The midnight peal : " Behold, I come I"

In Zion's gloomy hour, 
And let our dying graces live 
By thy restoring power. 

2 Oh, let thy chosen few 

Awake to earnest prayer ; 
Their covenant again renew, 
And walk in filial fear. 

3 Thy Spirit then will speak 

Through lips of humble clay, 
Till hearts of adamant shall break. 
Till rebels shall obey.

Oh, come and bring salvation near ;

And what I do in anything 
To do it as for thee ;

While still to thee I tend ; 

In all I do be thou the way, 

In all, be thou the end.

Nothing so small can be 
But draws, when acted for thy sake, 
Greatness and worth from thee. 

4 If done beneath thy laws, 
E'en servile labors shine ; 
Hallowed is toil if this the cause ; 
The meanest work, divine. 



606 



1 Laborers of Christ, arise, 

And gird you for the toil ; 
The dew of promise from the skies 
Already cheers the soil. 

2 Go where the sick recline. 

Where mourning hearts deplore. 
And where the sons of sorrow pine 
Dispense your hallowed store. 

3 Be faith which looks above. 

With prayer, your constant guest ; 
And wrap the Saviour's changeless love 
A mantle round your breast 

4 So shall you share the wealth 

That earth may ne'er despoil, 
And the blest gospel's saving health 
Repay your arduous toil.

Salvation in Emmanuel's name ; 
To distant climes the tidings bear, 
And plant the rose of Sharon there.

With flaming zeal your breasts inspire, 
Bid raging winds their fury cease, 
And calm the savage breast to peace. 

3 And when our labors all are o'er. 
Then we shall meet to part no more — 
Meet with the blood-bought throng to fall, 
And crown our Jesus Lord of all.

1 Israel ! to thy tents repair ; 

Why thus secure on hostile ground ? 
Thy King commands thee to beware, 
For many foes thy camp surround. 

2 The trumpet gives a martial strain ; 

O Israel ! gird thee for the fight ; 
Arise, the combat to maintain. 
And put thine enemies to flight. 

3 Thou shouldst not sleep as others do ; 

Awake, be vigilant, be brave ; 

The coward, and the sluggard too. 

Must wear the fetters of the slave. 
272 



4 A nobler lot is cast for thee, 

A kingdom waits thee in the skies ; 
With such a hope, shall Israel flee, 
Or yield, through weariness, the prize? 

5 No : let a careless world repose 

And slumber on through life's short day, 
While Israel to the conflict goes. 
And bears the glorious prize away. 

611 

1 Disowned of heaven, by man oppressed. 

Outcasts from Zion's hallowed ground, 

Oh, why should Israel's sons, once blessed, 

Still roam the scorning world around? 

2 Lord ! visit thy forsaken race. 

Back to thy fold the wanderers bring ; 
Teach them to seek thy slighted grace. 
And hail in Christ their promised King. 

3 The veil of darkness rend in twain 

Which hides their Shiloh's glorious light, 
The severed olive branch again 
Firm to its parent stock unite. 

4 Hail, glorious day, expected long, [pour. 

When Jew and Greek one prayer shall 
With eager feet one temple throng, 
With grateful praise one God adore.

From dust and darkness and the dead ; 
Though humbled long, awake at length, 
And gird thee with thy Saviour's strength. 

2 Put all thy beauteous garments on, 
And let thine excellence be known ; 
Decked in the robes of righteousness, 
The world thy glories shall confess. 

3 No more shall foes unclean invade, 
And fill thy hallowed walls with dread ; 
No more shall hell's insulting host 
Their vict'ry and thy sorrows boast.

Bring daring rebels to thy feet.

Let saints and angels praise thy name.

And ye shall prove my gospel true. 
By all the works that I have done, 
By all the wonders ye shall do. 

3 " Teach all the nations my commands ; 

I 'm with you till the world shall end ; 
All power is trusted to my hands, 
I can destroy, and I defend."

On a bright cloud to heaven he rode ; 
They to the farthest nation spread 
The grace of their ascended God.

Through all the millions of the skies. 
That song of triumph which records 
That all the earth is now the Lord's.

Obedient, mighty God ! to thee ; 

And over land and stream and main 
Wave thou the sceptre of thy reign. 

3 Oh, that the anthem now might swell, 
And host to host the triumph tell, 
That not one rebel heart remains, 
But over all the Saviour reigns.

1 O Spirit of the living God ! 

In all thy plenitude of grace, 
Where'er the foot of man hath trod, 
Descend on our apostate race.

To preach the reconciling word ; 
Give power and unction from above 
Where'er the joyful sound is heard.

Souls without strength inspire with might. 
Bid mercy triumph over wrath.

Breathe thou abroad like morning air, 

Till hearts of stone begin to beat.

And wintry clouds o'ercast the sky,

And deem that our redemption 's nigh.

All nations bow to thy command, 
And grace revive a dying world.

To wait for the appointed hour, 
And fit us by thy grace to share

And wait the smilings of thy face. 
Assemble round thy mercy seat.

To be a light to Gentile lands, 
To open the benighted eyes. 
And loose the wretched pris'ner's bandt- ?

His vast dominion shall extend? 
That every tongue shall call him Loid, 
And every knee before him bend ?

Send forth thy heralds far and neai, 
And call thy banished children home.

1 Great God ! whose universal sway 
The known and unknown worlds obey, 
Now give the kingdom to thy Son, 
Extend his power, exalt his throne. 

2 Thy sceptre well becomes his hands, 
All heaven submits to his commands ; 
His justice shall avenge the poor. 
And pride and rage prevail no more. 

3 With power he vindicates the just, 
And treads th' oppressor in the dust ; 
His worship and his fear shall last 
Till hours and years and time be past.

So shall he send his influence down ; 
His grace on fainting souls distills 
Like heavenly dew on thirsty hills. 

5 The heathen lands that lie beneath 
The shades of overspreading death 
Revive at his first dawning light. 
And deserts blossom at the sight.

Dressed in the robes of joy and praise ;

" I am Jehovah — God alone ;" 

Thy voice their idols shall confound, 
And cast their altars to the ground. 

3 No more let human blood be spilt. 
Vain sacrifice for human guilt, 
But to each conscience be applied 
The blood that flowed from Jesus' side.

In every land declare thy name, 

Till adverse powers before thee fall, 

And crown the Saviour Lord of all.

Are by creation thine, 
And in thy works, by all beheld, 
Thy radiant glories shine. 

2 But, Lord ! thy greater love has sent 

Thy gospel to mankind, 
Unveiling what rich stores of grace 
Are treasured in thy mind, 

3 Lord! when shall these glad tidings 

The spacious earth around, [spread 

Till every tribe and every soul 
Shall hear the joyful sound? 

4 Smile, Lord ! on each sincere attempt 

To spread the gospel's rays, 
And build on sin's demolished throne 
The temple of thy praise.

1 Behold, the mountain of the Lord 

In latter days shall rise. 
On mountain tops, above the hills. 
And draw the wond'ring eyes. 

2 To this the joyful nations round, 

All tribes and tongues, shall flow ; 
" Up to the hill of God," they say, 
" And to his house, we '11 go." 

3 The beams that shine from Zion's hill 

Shall lighten every land ;

Shall all the world command.

Their millions slain deplore ;

Exalt thy fallen head ; 
Again in thy Redeemer trust ;

2 Awake, awake, put on thy strength, 

Thy beautiful array ; 
The day of freedom dawns at length, 
The Lord's appointed day. 

3 Rebuild thy walls, thy bounds enlarge, 

And send thy heralds forth ; 
Say to the South, " Give up thy charge, 
And keep not back, North !' 

4 They come, they come ; thine exiled banils, 

Where'er they rest or roam. 
Have heard thy voice in distant lands, 
And hasten to their home. 

5 Thus, though the universe shall burn 

And God his works destroy. 
With songs thy ransomed shall return, 
And everlasting joy.

2 When shall thy name from shore to shore 

Sound all the earth abroad. 
And distant nations know and love 
Their Saviour and their God? 

3 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands ! 

Sing loud with solemn voice ; 



Let every tongue exalt his praise. 
And every heart rejoice. 

4 He, the great Lord, the sovereign Judge, 
That sits enthroned above. 
In wisdom rules the worlds he made, 
And bids them taste his love. 

627 

1 Light of the lonely pilgrim's heart ! 

Star of the coming day ! 
Arise, and with thy morning beams 
Chase all our griefs away. 

2 Come, blessed Lord ! let every shore 

And answering island sing 
The praises of thy royal name, 
And own thee as their King. 

3 Bid the whole earth, responsive now 

To the bright world above, 
Break forth in sweetest strains of joy 
In memory of thy love. 

4 Jesus ! thy fair creation groans, 

The air, the earth, the sea, 
In unison with all our hearts, 
And calls aloud for thee. 

5 Thine was the cross, with all its fruits 

Of grace and peace divine ; 
Be thine the crown of glory now, 
The palm of victory thine.

1 O Lord our God ! arise, 

The cause of truth maintain, 
And wide o'er all the peopled world 
Extend her blessed reign. 

2 Thou Prince of life ! arise, 

Nor let thy glory cease ; 
Far spread the conquests of thy grace, 
And bless the earth with peace. 

3 Thou Holy Ghost ! arise. 

Expand thy quickening wing, 
And o'er a dark and ruined world 
Let light and order spring. 

4 All on the earth arise. 

To God the Saviour sing, 
From shore to shore, from earth to heaven, 
Let echoing anthems ring. 

629 

1 The Lord to my Lord said. 

At my right hand sit thou, 
Until I make thy enemies 
Beneath thy feet to bow. 

2 Thy rod of strength the Lord 

Shall out of Zion send, 
And over all thy enemies 
Do thou thy pow'r extend. 

3 And in the day when thou 

Dost thy great power take, 
278 



Thy people shall themselves to thee 
A free-will off'ring make. 

4 In beauteous, holy robes 

Arrayed, they come to thee ; 
As dew-drops from the morning womb 
Thy youth shall ever be. 

5 The Lord an oath hath sworn. 

An oath he will not break : 
For ever like Melchisedec's, 
Thy priesthood I will make. 



630 



1 Ye messengers of Christ ! 

His sovereign voice obey ; 
Arise, and follow where he leads. 
And peace attend your way. 

2 The Master whom you serve 

Will needful strength bestow ; 
Depending on his promised aid. 
With sacred courage go — 

3 Go, spread the Saviour's fame ; 

And tell his matchless grace 
To the most guilty and depraved 
Of Adam's numerous race. 

4 Mountains shall sink to plains. 

And hell in vain oppose ; 
The cause is God's, and must prevail, 
In spite of all his foes.

See that glory-beaming star.

Aught of hope or joy foretell? 
Traveler, yes ; it brings the day — 

Promised day of Israel.

Higher yet that star ascends. 
Traveler, blessedness and light. 

Peace and truth, its course portends. 
Watchman, will its beams alone 

Gild the spot that gave them birth ? 
Traveler, ages are its own ; 

See ! it bursts o'er all the earth.

For the morning seems to dawn. 
Traveler, darkness takes its flight, 

Doubt and terror are withdrawn.

Hie thee to thy quiet home.

Lo ! the Son of God, is come 1

When, beneath Messiah's sway, 
Every nation, every clime, 
Shall the gospel's call obey. 

2 Mightiest kings his power shall own. 

Heathen tribes his name adore ; 
Satan and his host, o'erthrown, 
Bound in chains, shall hurt no more. 



3 Then shall wars and tumults cease. 

Then be banished grief and pain : 
Righteousness and joy and peace 
Undisturbed shall ever reign.

Ever praise his glorious name ; 
All his mighty acts record ; 
All his wondrous love proclaim.

Awake, for thy foes shall oppress thee no

Bright o'er thy hills dawns the daystar of 



Arise, for the night of thy sorrow is o'er. 

2 Strong were thy foes, but the arm that sub- 

dued them 
And scattered their legions was mightier 

far; 
They fled like the chaff" from the scourge 

that pursued them ; 
Vain ^ere their steeds and their chariots 

ot war. 

3 Daughter of Zion ! the power that hath saved 

thee 
Extolled with the harp and the timbrel 

should be ; 
Shout, for the foe is destroyed that enslaved 

thee; 
The oppressor is vanquished, and Zion is 

free.

Hail to the millions from bondage return-

Gentiles and Jews the blest vision behold

Loud from the mountain-top echoes are

Praise to Jehovah ascending on high ; 
Fallen are the engines of war and com- 
motion, 
Shouts of salvation are rending the sky.

1 The morning light is breaking ; 

The darkness disappears ; 
The sons of earth are waking 

To penitential tears ; 
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean 

Brings tidings from afar 
Of nations in commotion, 

Prepared for Zion's war. 

2 Rich dews of grace come o'er us 

In many a gentle shower, 
And brighter scenes before us 

Are opening every hour ; 
Each cry to heaven going 

Abundant answers brings, 
And heavenly gales are blowing 

With peace upon their wings. 

3 See heathen nations bending 

Before the God we love, 
And thousand hearts ascending 

In gratitude above ; 
While sinners, now confessing, 

The gospel call obey, 
And seek the Saviour's blessing, 

A nation in a day. 

4 Blest river of salvation, 

Pursue thine onward way ; 
Flow thou to every nation. 
Nor in thy richness stay — 



Stay not till all the lowly 
Triumphant reach their home ; 

Stay not till all the holy 

Proclaim " The Lord is come."

1 Now be the gospel banner 

In every land unfurled ; 
And be the shout, ''Hosanna !" 

Re-echoed through the world, 
Till every isle and nation, 

Till every tribe and tongue, 
Receive the great salvation. 

And join the happy throng. 

2 What though th' embattled legions 

Of earth and hell combine ? 
His power throughout their regions 

Shall soon resplendent shine ; 
Ride on, Lord ! victorious, 

Immanuel, Prince of peace ! 
Thy triumph shall be glorious, 

Thine empire still increase. 

3 Yes, thou shalt reign for ever, 

Jesus, King of kings ! 
Thy light, thy love, thy favor. 

Each ransomed captive sings ; 
The isles for thee are waiting. 

The deserts learn thy praise, 
The hills and valleys, greeting, 

The song responsive raise.

From India's coral strand, 
Where Afric's sunny fountains 

Roll down their golden sand,

Their land from error's chain.

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle,

To set the captive free. 
To take away transgression, 

And rule in equity. 

He comes with succor speedy 

To those who suflfer wrong ; 
To help the poor and needy, 

And bid the weak be strong ; 
To give them songs for sighing, 

Their darkness turn to light, 
Whose souls, condemned and dying. 

Were precious in his sight.

Upon the fruitful earth, 
And love, joy, hope, like flowers, 

Spring in his path to birth ; 
Before him on the mountains 

Shall peace, the herald, go, 
And righteousness in fountains 

From hill to vallev flow. 



PURLEIGH. 




4 For him shall prayer unceaging 

And daily vows ascend. 
His kingdom still increasing — 

A kingdom without end ; 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove ; 
His name shall stand for ever ; 

That name to us is Love.

1 When, Lord ! to this our western land, 
Led by thy providential hand, 

Our wandering fathers came. 
Their ancient homes, their friends in youth, 
Sent forth the heralds of thy truth 

To keep them in thy name. 

2 Then through our solitary coast 
The desert features soon were lost ; 

Thy temples then arose ; 

Our shores, as culture made them fair, 

Were hallowed by thy rites, by prayer, 

And blossomed as the rose. 
19 



3 And oh, may we repay this debt 
To regions solitarj^ yet. 

Within our spreading land ; 
There brethren from our common horn 
Still westward, like our fathers, roam, 
Still guided by thy hand. 

4 Saviour I we own this debt of love ; 
Oh, shed thy Spirit from above. 

To move each Christian breast ; 
Till heralds shall thy truth proclaim, 
And temples rise to fix thy name, 

Through all our desert west.

Lo ! the sacred herald stands, 
Welcome news to Zion bearing — 
Zion long in hostile lands ; 

Mourning captive ! 
God himself will loose thy bands. 

2 Has thy night been long and mournful, 

All thy friends unfaithful proved? 
Have thy foes been proud and scornful, 
By thy sighs and tears unmoved? 

Cease thy mourning ; 
Zion still is well beloved. 

3 God, thy God, will now restore thee. 

He himself appears thy friend ; 
All thy foes shall flee before thee, 
Here their boasts and triumphs end; 

Great deliverance 
Zion's King will quickly send. 

4 Peace and joy shall now attend thee. 

All thy warfare now is past, 
God, thy Saviour, shall defend thee. 
Peace and joy are come at last; 

All thy conflicts 
End in everlasting rest.

Zion, kei)t by power divine ; 
All her foes shall be confounded, 
Though the world in arms combine ; 

Happy Zion, 
What a favored lot is thine I

Every human tie may perish ; 

Friend to friend unfaithful prove ; 
Mothers cease their own to cherish ; 

Heaven and earth at last remove ; 
But no changes 

Can attend Jehovah's love. 

3 In the furnace God may prove thee. 

Thence to bring thee forth more bright, 
But can never cease to love thee ; 
Thou art precious in his sight ; 

God is with thee — 
God, thine everlasting light.

1 O'er the gloomy hills of darkness, 

Cheered by no celestial ray. 
Sun of righteousness ! arising. 
Bring the bright, the glorious day ; 

Send the gospel 
To the earth's remotest bounds. 

2 Kingdoms wide that sit in darkness, 

Grant them. Lord ! the glorious light 
And from eastern coast to western 
May the morning chase the night ; 

And redemption, 
Freely purchased, win the day. 

3 Fly abroad, thou mighty Gospel ! 

Win and conquer, never cease ; 
May thy lasting, wide dominions 
Multiply and still increase ; 

Sway thy sceptre, 
Saviour! all the world around.

1 Glorious things of thee are spoken, 

Zion, city of our God ; 
He whose word cannot be broken 

Formed thee for his own abode ; 
On the Rock of Ages founded, 

What can shake thy sure repose ? 
With salvation's walls surrounded. 

Thou mayst smile at all thy foes. 

2 See, the streams of living waters, 

Springing from eternal love. 
Well supply thy sons and daughters. 
And all fear of want remove ; 

STILLINGFLEEL 



Who can faint while such a river 
Ever flows their thirst to assuage — 

Grace which, like the Lord, the giver. 
Never fails from age to age ? 

3 Round each habitation hovering. 

See the cloud and fire appear. 
For a glory and a covering, 

Showing that the Lord is near ; 
Thus deriving from the banner 

Light by night and shade by day. 
Safe they feed upon the manna 

Which he gives them when they pray.

Let all the earth be filed.

With the shepherd's kindest care, 
All the feeble gently leading. 
While the lambs thy bosom share, 

3 Now, these little ones receiving. 
Fold them in thy gracious arm ; 
There we know, thy word believing, 
Only there secure from harm. 



3 Never, from thy pasture roving, 

Let them be the lion's prey ; 
Let thy tenderness, so loving, 

Keep them all life's dang'rous way, 

4 Then, within thy fold eternal, 

Let them find a resting-place ; 
Feed in pastures ever vernal, 
Drink the rivers of thy grace.

1 Thou who a tender parent art ! 

Regard a parent's plea ; 
Our offspring with an anxious heart 
We now commend to thee. 

2 Our children are our greatest care, 

A charge which thou hast given ; 
In all thy graces let them share, 
And all the joys of heaven. 

3 If a centurion could succeed 

Who for his servant cried, 
Wilt thou refuse to hear us plead 
For those so near allied ? 

4 On us thou hast bestow'd thy grace, 

Be to our children kind ; 
Among thy saints give them a place, 
And leave not one behind. 

6 Happy we then shall live below 
The remnant of our days, 
And when to brighter worlds we go 
Shall long resound thy praise. 

663 

1 Behold, what condescending love 

Jesus on earth displays ! 
To babes and sucklings he extends 
The riches of his grace. 

2 He still the ancient promise keeps 

To our forefathers giveu ; 

2<J6 



Young children in his arms he takes, 
And calls them heirs of heaven. 

3 With flowing tears and thankful hearts 

We give them up to thee ; 
Receive them, Lord! into thine arms; 
Thine may they ever be. 

4 Thus to the parents and their seed 

Let thy salvation come. 
And numerous households meet at last 
In one eternal home. 

664 

1 How large the promise, how divine, 

To Abraham and his seed ! 
" I '11 be a God to thee and thine, 
Supplying all their need." 

2 The words of his extensive love 

From age to age endure ; 
The Angel of the covenant proves 
And seals the blessings sure. 

3 Jesus the ancient faith confirms 

To our great father given ; 
He takes young children in his arms, 
And calls them heirs of heaven. 

4 Our God! how faithful are his wayi I 

His love endures the same ; 
Nor from the promise of his grace 
Blots out the children's name.

Through his eternal Son —

And in his mighty power ; 
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts 
Is more than conqueror.

1 Shepherd of Israel ! from above 

Thy feeble flock behold, 
And let us never lose thy love, 
Nor wander from thy fold. 

2 Thou wilt not cast thy lambs away ; 

Thy hand is ever near 
To guide them, lest they go astray, 
And keep them safe from fear. 

3 Thy tender care supports the weak, 

And will not let them fall ; 
Then teach us, Lord ! thy praise to speak 
And on thy name to call.

Let grace o'er all our doubts prevail, 
To prove that thou art kind.

And may we find them true. 
And still in stature as we grow 
Increase in wisdom too.

AVe enter into rest. 
Thy tender arms around us cast. 
And fold us to thy breast.

We hope for heavenly crowns above, 
From a Redeemer crucified. 

3 Let the vain world pronounce it shame, 

And fling their scandals on thy cause ; 
We come to boast our Saviour's name, 
And make our triumphs in his cross. 

4 With joy we tell the scoffing age, 

He that was dead has left his tomb ; 
He lives above their utmost rage. 
And we are waiting till he come.

1 My God ! and is thy table spread, 

And doth thy cup with love o'erflow ? 
Thither be all thy children led, 
And let them all its sweetness know. 

2 Hail, sacred feast which Jesus makes, 

Rich banquet of his flesh and blood ! 
Thrice happy he who here partakes 
That sacred stream, that heavenly food. 

3 Oh, let thy table honored be. 

And furnished well with joyful guests : 
And may each soul salvation see 
That here its sacred pledges tastes. 

4 To Father, Son and Holy Ghost, 

The God whom heaven and earth adole. 
From men and from the angel host 
Be praise and glory evermo'-e.

1 Thou whom my soul admires above 
All earthly joy and earthly love. 

Tell me, dear Shepherd ! let me know. 
Where doth thy sweetest pasture grow ? 

2 Where is the shadow of that rock 
That from the sun defends thy flock? 
Fain would I feed among thy sheep. 
Among them rest, among them sleep. 

3 Why should thy bride appear like one 
That turned aside to paths unknown ? 
My constant feet would never rove, 
Would never seek another love. 

4 The footsteps of thy flock I see ; 
Thy sweetest pastures here they be ; 

A wondrous feast thy love prepares, [tears. 
Bought with thy wounds and groans and 

5 His dearest flesh he makes my food, 
And bids me drink his richest blood ; 
Here to these hills my soul will come 
Till my beloved leads me home. 

672 

1 At thy command, our dearest Lord ! 

Here we attend thy dying feast ; 
Thy blood, like wine, adorns thy board. 
And thine own flesh feeds every guest. 

2 Our faith adores thy bleeding love. 

And trusts for life in One that died ;

1 Great Shepherd of thy ransomed flock 
Send down on all thy gifts to-day, 
The water from the riven rock, 
The manna gleaming on our way. 



3 The pangs of our expiring Lord 
The honors of thy law restored ; 
His sorrows made thy justice known, 
And paid for follies not his own. 



2 Yea, more, from out thy pierced side, j 4 Oh, for his sake, our guilt forgive. 

Whence flowed the water and the blood, : And let the mourning sinner live ; 

Pour on our souls the crimson tide, j The Lord will hear us in his name, 

And wash us in that cleansing flood. ' Nor shall our hope be turned to shame. 



3 Still journeying on amid the waste, 

And fainting oft beneath the strife. 
Our longing spirits yearn to taste 
Thy heavenly food, Bread of Life I 

4 And when our broken cisterns fail, 

And leave us thirsting on the sod, 
When all the powers of sin assail, 

We need thy strength, Wine of God 

5 Come to each waiting heart, Christ ! 

In all the fullness of thy love ; 

Make now this blessed Eucharist 

The earnest of thy joys above. 

675 

1 Deep in our hearts let us record 
The deeper sorrows of our Lord ; 
Behold the rising billows roll 
To overwhelm his holy soul. 

2 Yet, gracious God I thy power and love 
Have made the curse a blessing prove ; 
Those dreadful sufi'erings of thy Son 
Atoned for sins that we have done. 



676 

1 Jesus ! thou Joy of loving hearts ! 

Thou Fount of life I thou Light of men 
From the best bliss that earth imparts 
We turn unfllled to thee again. 

2 Thy truth unchanged has ever stood ; 

Thou savest those that on thee call ; 
To them that seek thee thou art good, 
To them that find thee all in all. 

3 We taste thee, thou hving Bread I 

And long to feast upon thee still ; 
We drink of thee, the Fountain Head, 
And thirst our souls from thee to fill. 

4 Our restless spirits yearn for thee, 

Where'er our changeful lot is cast, 
Glad when thy gracious smile we see, 
Blest when our faita can 'hold thee fast. 

5 Jesus I ever with us stay ; 

Make all our moments calm and bright ; 
Chase the dark night of sin away ; 
Shed o'er the wor'Jd thy holy light.

1 Nature with open volume stands 

To spread her Maker's praise abroad, 
And every labor of his hands 
Shows something worthy of a God. 

2 But in the grace that rescued man 

His brightest form of glory shines; 
Here, on the cross, 't is fairest drawn 
In precious blood and crimson lines. 

3 Here I behold his inmost heart. 

Where grace and vengeance strangely join, 

WARD. 



Piercing his Son with sharpest smart 
To make the purchased pleasures mine. 

4 Oh, the sweet wonders of that cross 

Where God, the Saviour, loved and died ! 
Her noblest life my spirit draws 

From his dear wounds and bleeding side. 

5 I would for ever speak his name 

In sounds to mortal ears unknown, 

With angels join to praise the Lamb, 

And worship at his Father's throne.

1 Jesus is gone above the skies. 

Where our weak senses reach him not ; 
And carnal objects court our eyes. 
To thrust our Saviour from our thought. 

2 He knows what wandering hearts we have. 

Apt to forget his lovely face. 
And to refresh our minds he gave 
These kind memorials of his grace. 
.302 



3 Let sinful sweets be all forgot. 

And earth grow less in our esteem, 
Christ and his love fill every thought, 
And faith and hope be fixed on him. 

4 AVhile he is absent from our sight, 

'T is to prepare our souls a place, 
That we may dwell in heavenly light, 
And live for ever near his face

1 Jesus I with all thy saints above 

My tongue would bear her part, 
Would sound aloud thy saving love, 
And sing thy bleeding heart. 

2 Blessed be the Lamb, my dearest Lord. 

Who bought me with his blood. 
And quenched his Fathers flaming sword 
In his own vital flood.

2 By faith we take the Bread of life 

With which our souls are fed, 
And cup in token of his blood 
That was for sinners shed. 

3 Under his banner thus we sing 

The wonders of his love, 
And thus anticipate by faith 
The heavenly feast above. 



682 

1 How condescending and how kind 

Was God's eternal Son ! 
Our misery reached his heavenly mind, 
And pity brought him down. 

2 He sunk beneath our heavy woes 

To raise us to his throne ; 
There 's ne'er a gift his hand bestows 
But cost his heart a groan. 

3 This was compassion like a God, 

That when the Saviour knew 
The price of pardon was his blood, 
His pity ne'er withdrew. 

1 Now, though he reigns exalted high, 
His love is still as great ; 
Well he remembers Calvary, 
Nor lets his saints forget. 

5 Here let our hearts begin to melt 
While we his death record. 
And with our joy for pardoned guilt 
Mourn that we pierced the Lord. 

683 

1 In memory of the Saviour's love 

We keep the sacred feast 

Where every humble, contrite heart 

Is made a welcome guest. 
304 



684 



1 If human kindness meets return 

And owns the grateful tie, 
If tender thoughts within us burn 
To feel a friend is nigh, 

2 Oh, shall not warmer accents tell 

The gratitude we owe 
To him who died our fears to quell, 
Our more than orphan's woe ? 

3 While yet his anguished soul surveyed 

Those pangs he would not flee, 
What love his latest words displayed ! 
" Meet and remember me I" 

4 Remember thee, thy death, thy shame, 

Our sinful hearts to share 1 
O mem'ry ! leave no other name 
But his recorded there.

1 How sweet and awful is the place 

With Christ within the doors, 
While everlasting love displays 
The choicest of her stores ! 

2 While all our hearts and all our songs 

Join to admire the feast, 
Each of us cries with thankful tongue, 
" Lord ! why was I a guest ? 

3 " Why was I made to hear thy voice, 

And enter while there 's room, 
When thousands make a wretched choice. 
And rather starve than come ?" 

4 'T was the same love that spread the feast 

That sweetly forced us in ; 
Else we had still refused to taste, 
And perished in our sin. 

5 Pity the nations, our God ! 

Constrain the earth to come ; 
Send thy victorious word abroad, 
And bring the strangers home. 

6 We long to see thy churches full, 

That all the chosen race 
May, with one voice and heart and soul. 
Sing thy redeeming grace. 

686 

1 The promise of my Father's love 
Shall stand for ever good ; 
He said, and gave his soul to death 
And sealed the grace with blood. 
20 



2 To this dear covenant of thy word 

I set my worthless name ; 
I seal th' engagement to my Lord, 
And make my humble claim. 

3 I call that legacy my own 

AVhich Jesus did bequeath ; 
'T was purchased with a dying groan, 
And ratified in death. 

4 The light and strength, the pard'ning grace, 

And gloiy, shall be mine ; 
My life and soul, my heart and flesh 
And all my powers are thine. 

687 

1 My God ! accept my heart this day, 

And make it always thine, 
That I from thee no more may stray, 
No more from thee decline. 

2 Before the cross of him who died, 

Behold, I prostrate fall ; 
Let every sin be crucified. 
Let Christ be all in all. 

3 May the dear blood once shed for me 

My blest atonement prove, 

That I from first to last may be 

The purchase of thy love. 

4 Let every thought and work and word 

To thee be ever given ; 
Then life shall be thy service, Lord ! 
And death the gate of heaven.

1 Sweet the moments, rich in blessing, 

Which before the cross I spend. 

Life and health and peace possessing 

From the sinner's dying Friend. 

2 Here I '11 sit for ever viewing 

Mercy's streams in streams of blood ; 
Precious drops, my soul bedewing, 
Plead and claim my peace with God. 

3 Truly blessed is this station, 

Low before his cross to lie. 



While I see divine compassion 
Floating in his languid eye. 

4 Here it is I find my heaven. 

While upon the Lamb I gaze ; 
Love I much ? I 've much forgiven ; 
I 'm a miracle of grace. 

5 Love and grief my heart dividing, 

With my tears his feet I bathe ; 
Constant still in faith abiding, 
Life deriving from his death.

1 Lamb of God ! whose bleeding love 

We now recall to mind, 
Send the answer from above 

And let us mercy find ; 
Think on us who think on thee, 

And every burdened soul release ; 
Oh, remember Calvary, 

And bid us go in peace. 

2 By thine agonizing pain 

And bloody sweat we pray, 
By thy dying love to man. 
Take all our sins away ; 

MIRIAM. 



^^ 




Burst our bonds and set us free. 

From all iniquity release ; 
Oh, remember Calvary, 

And bid us go in peace. 

3 Let thy blood, by faith applied, 

The sinner's pardon seal ; 
Own us freely justified. 

And all our sickness heal ; 
By thy passion on the tree, 

Let all our griefs and troubles ceaae 
Oh, remember Calvary, 

And bid us go in peace.

1 Bread to pilgrims given ! 

Richer than angels eat, 
O Manna sent from heaven ! 

For heaven-born natures meet. 
Give us, for thee long pining, 

To eat till richly filled ; 
Till, earth's delights resigning. 

Our every wish is stilled. 

2 Fountain life-bestowing 

From out the Saviour's heart, 
A fountain purely flowing, 
A fount of love thou art ! 



Oh, let us, freely tasting, 
Our burning thirst assuage ; 

Thy sweetness, never wasting. 
Avails from age to age. 

3 Jesus ! this feast receiving, 
We thee unseen adore ; 

Thy faithful word believing. 
We take ard doubt no more ; 

Give us, thou true and loving! 
On earth to live in thee. 

Then, death the veil removing, 

Thy glorious face to see.

What is pleasing in his sight ; 
Perfect us in all his will,

Who the covenant sealed with blood. 
Let our hearts and voices raise 
Loud thanksgivings to our God.

While I would renew my vow. 
And record thy dying love ; 
Hear, and help me from above. 

2 Feed me. Saviour ! with this bread. 
Broken in thy body's stead ; 
Cheer my spirit with this wine. 
Streaming like that blood of thine. 

3 And as now I eat and drink. 
Let me truly, sweetly think. 
Thou didst hang upon the tree, 
Broken, bleeding, there for me.

1 At the Lamb's high feast we sing 
Praise to our victorious King, 
Who hath waslied us in the tide 
Flowing from his pierced side ; 
Praise we him whose love divine 
Gives his sacred blood for wine, 
Gives his body for the feast, 
Christ the Victim, Christ the Priest. 

2 Where the paschal blood is poured, 
Death's dark angel sheathes his sword ; 
Israel's hosts triumphant go 
Through the wave that drowns the foe. 



MEMORIAL 



Praise we Christ, whose blood we shed. 
Paschal Victim, paschal Bread ; 
W^ith sincerity and love 
Eat we manna from above. 

3 Mighty Victim, from the sky ! 
Hell's fierce powers beneath thee lie ; 
Thou hast conquered in the fight, 
Thou hast brought us life and light ; 
Hymns of glory and of praise. 
Risen Lord ! to thee we raise ; 
Holy Father ! praise to thee 
With the Spirit ever be.

Wine of the soul in mercy shed.

And in whose death our sins are dead !

Look on the tears by sinners shed, 

And be thy feast to us the token 
Tl»at by t)iy grace our souls are fed

1 Not worthy, Lord ! to gather up the crumbs 

With trembling hand that from thy table fall 
A weary, heavy-laden sinner comes 
To plead thy promise and obey thy call. 

2 I am not worthy to be thought thy child, 

Nor sit the last and lowest at thy board ; 
Too long a wanderer and too oft beguiled, 
I only ask one reconciling word. 

3 One word from thee, my Lord ! one smile, one look, 

And I could face the cold, rough world again, 
And with that treasure in my heart could brook 
The wrath of devils and the scorn of men. 

4 And is not mercy thy prerogative — 

Free mercy, boundless, fathomless, divine ? 
Me, Lord ! the chief of sinners, me forgive, 
And thine the greater glory, only thine. 

5 I hear thy voice ; thou bid'st me come and rest ; 

I come, I kneel, I clasp thy pierced feet; 
Thou bid'st me take my place, a welcome guest, 
Among thy saints, and of thy banquet eat. 

6 My praise can only breathe itself in prayer. 

My prayer can only lose itself in thee ; 
Dwell thou for ever in my heart, and there. 
Lord ! let me sup with thee ; sup thou with me.

He calls, he bids you come ; 
Guilt holds you back, and fear alarms ; 
But see, there yet is room — 

2 Room in the Saviour's bleeding heart ; 

There love and pity meet ; 
Nor will he bid the soul depart 
That trembles at his feet.

Invites your souls to come ; 
The rebel shall be called a child. 
And kindly welcomed home.

1 Light of light ! enlighten me, 

Now anew the day is dawning ; 
Sun of grace ! the shadows flee, 

Brighten thou my Sabbath morning ; 
With thy joyous sunshine blest, 
Happy is my day of rest. 

2 Fount of all our joy and peace ! 

To thy living waters lead me ; 
Thou from earth my soul release. 

And with grace and mercy feed me ; 
Bless thy word that it may prove 
Rich in fruit that thou dost love. 

3 Kindle thou the sacrifice 

That upon my lips is lying ; 
Clear the shadows from mine eyes, 

That, from every error flying. 
No strange fire within me glow 
That thine altar doth not know. 



4 Let me with my heart to-day. 

Holy, holy, holy, singing, 
Rapt a while from earth away. 

All my soul to thee upspringing, 
Have a foretaste only given 
How they worship thee in heaven. 

5 Rest in me and I in thee, 

Build a paradise within me ; 
Oh, reveal thyself to me, 

Blessed Love ! who diedst to win me ; 
Fed from thine exhaustless urn, 
Pure and bright my lamp shall burn. 

6 Hence all care, all vanity. 

For the day to God is holy ; 
Come, thou glorious Majesty ! 

Deign to fill this temple lowly ; 
Naught to-day my soul shall move, 
Simply resting in thy love.

THE LORD'S DAY, 



ORFORD. 



LM. 




1 My opening eyes TV'ith rapture see 

The dawn of thy returning day ; 

My thoughts, God ! ascend to thee, 

While thus my early vows I pay. 

2 Oh, bid this trifling world retire, 

And drive each carnal thought away ; 
Nor let me feel one vain desire, 
One sinful thought, through all the day. 

3 Then, to thy courts when I repair. 

My soul shall rise on joyful wing, 
The wonders of thy love declare, 
And join the strains w^hich angels sing. 

701 

1 Another six days' work is done, 
Another Sabbath is begun ; 
Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest. 
Improve the day thy God hath blessed. 

2 Oh, that our thoughts and thanks may rise 
As grateful incense to the skies. 

And draw from heaven that sweet repose 
Which none but he that feels it knows. 

3 This heavenly calm within the breast 

Is the dear pledge of glorious rest 

Which for the church of God remains — 

The end of cares, the end of pains. 
3U 



4 In holy duties let the day, 
In holy pleasures, pass away ; 
How sweet the Sabbath thus to spend 
In hope of one that ne'er shall end ! 

702 

1 AxoTHER day has passed along. 

And we are nearer to the tomb — 
Nearer to join the heavenly song 
Or hear the last eternal doom. 

2 Sweet is the light of Sabbath eve. 

And soft the sunbeams lingering there ; 
For these blest hours the world I leave, 
Wafted on wings of faith and prayer. 

3 The time how lovely and how still ! 

Peace shines and smiles on all below, 
The plain, the stream, the wood, the hill. 
All fair with evening's setting glow. 

4 Season of rest ! the tranquil soul 

Feels the sweet calm, and melts in love^ 
And while these sacred moments roll 
Faith sees a smiling heaven above. 

5 Nor will our days of toil be long, 

Our pilgrimage will soon be trod ; 

And we shall join the ceaseless song, 

The endless Sabbath of our God.

1 Lord of the Sabbath ! hear our vows, 
On this thy day, in this thy house, 
And own as grateful sacrifice 

The songs which from the desert rise. 

2 Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord ! we love, 
But there 's a nobler rest above ; 

To that our laboring souls aspire 
With ardent pangs of strong desire. 

3 No more fatigue, no more distress, 
Nor sin, nor hell, shall reach the plac€ ; 
No groans to mingle with the songs 
Which warble from immortal tongues ; 

4 No rude alarms of raging foes. 
No cares to break the long repose ; 
No midnight shade, no clouded sun, 
But sacred, high, eternal noon. 

5 long-expected day, begin, 

Dawn on these realms of woe and sin ; 
Fain would we leave this weary road, 
And sleep in death to rest with Grod. 

704 

1 Come, dearest Lord ! and bless this day. 
Come bear our thoughts from earth away ; 
Now let our noblest passions rise 
With ardor to their native skies. 



2 Come, Holy Spirit ! all divine. 
With rays of light upon us shine, 
And let our waiting souls be blessed 
On this sweet day of sacred rest. 

3 Then, when our Sabbaths here are o'er, 
And we arrive on Canaan's shore, 
With all the ransomed we shall spend 
A Sabbath which shall never end. 

705 

1 Great God ! attend while Sion sings 
The joy that from thy presence springs ; 
To spend one day with thee on earth 
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth. 

2 God is our sun, he makes our day ; 
God is our shield, he guards our way 
From all th' assaults of hell and sin, 
From foes without and foes within. 

3 All needful grace will God bestow, 
And crown that grace with glory too ; 
He gives us all things, and withholds 
No real good from upright souls. 

4 O God our King ! whose sovereign sway 

The glorious hosts of heaven obey, 

And devils at thy presence flee, 

Blest is the man that trusts in thee.

1 Frequent the day of God returns 

To shed its quickening beams, 
And yet how slow devotion burns 1 
How languid are its flames ! 

2 Accept our faint attempts to love, 

Our frailties, Lord ! forgive ; 
We would be like thy saints above, 
And praise thee while we live. 

3 Increase, Lord ! our faith and hope. 

And fit us to ascend 
Where the assembly ne'er breaks up. 
The Sabbath ne'er shall end ; 

4 Where we shall breathe in heavenly air 

With heavenly lustre shine. 
Before the throne of God appear, 
And feast on love divine ; 

5 Where we in high seraphic strains 

Shall all our powers employ ; 
Delighted range th' ethereal plains. 
And take our fill of joy. 

707 

1 Spirit of truth ! on this thy day 

To thee for help we cry 
To guide us through the dreary way 
Of dark mortality. 

2 We ask not. Lord ! the cloven flame 

Or tongues of various tone, 
316 



But long thy praises to proclaim 
With fervor in our own. 

3 We mourn not that prophetic skill 

Is found on earth no more ; 
Enough for us to trace thy will 
In Scripture's sacred lore. 

4 When tongues shall cease and power decay, 

And knowledge empty prove, 
Do thou thy trembling servants stay 
AVith faith, with hope, with love. 

708 

1 When the worn spirit wants repose 

And sighs her God to seek. 
How sweet to hail the evening's close 
That ends the weary week ! 

2 How welcome is the early dawn 

That opens on the sight. 
When first the soul-reviving morn 
Sheds forth new rays of light ! 

3 Blest day ! thine hours too soon will cease. 

Yet, while they gently roll, 
Breathe, heavenly Spirit, S/.irce of peace 1 
A Sabbath o'er my soul. 

4 When will my pilgrimage be done, 

The world's long week be o'er, 
That Sabbath dawn which needs no sun, 
That day which fades no more?

1 This is the day the Lord hath made, 

He calls the hours his own ; 
Let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad, 
And praise surround the throne. 

2 To-day he rose and left the dead, 

And Satan's empire fell ; 
To-day the saints his triumph spread, 
And all his wonders tell. 

3 Hosanna to th' anointed King, 

To David's holy Son ; 
Help us, Lord ! descend and bring 
Salvation from thy throne. 

4 Blest be the Lord who comes to men 

With messages of grace. 
Who comes in God his Father's name 
To save our sinful race. 

5 Hosanna in the highest strains 

The church on earth can raise ; 
The highest heavens in which he reigns 
Shall give him nobler praise. 



710 



1 Blest morning, whose young dawning rays 

Beheld our rising God, 
That saw him triumph o'er the dust, 
And leave his dark abode. 

2 In the cold prison of a tomb 

The great Redeemer lay 
Till the revolving skies had brought 
The third, th' appointed, day. 



3 Hell and the grave unite their force 

To hold our God in vain ; 
The sleeping Conqueror arose, 
And burst their feeble chain. 

4 To thy great name, almighty Lord ! 

These sacred hours we pay, 
And loud hosannas shall proclaim 
The triumph of the day. 

5 Salvation and immortal praise 

To our victorious King ; 
Let heaven and earth and rocks and 
With glad hosannas ring. 



711 



1 With joy we hail the sacred day 

Which God hath called his own ; 
With joy the summons we obey 
To worship at his throne. 

2 Thy chosen temple. Lord I how fair ! 

Where willing vot'ries throng 
To breathe the humble, fervent prayer 
And pour the choral song. 

3 Spirit of grace ! oh, deign to dwell 

Within thy church below ; 
Make her in holiness excel, 
With pure devotion glow. 

4 Let peace within her walls be found •, 

Let all her sons unite 
To spread with grateful zeal around 
Her clear and shining light.

1 To-day the Saviour rose, 

Our Jesus left the dead ; 
He conquered our mahgnant foes, 
And Satan captive led. 

2 He left his glorious throne, 

To make our peace with God ; 
Blessings for ever on his name, 
He bought us with his blood. 

3 For us his life he paid. 

For us the law fulfilled ; 
On him our load of guilt was laid ; 
We by his stripes are healed. 

4 Ye saints, adore his name 

Who hath such mercy shown ; 
Ye sinners, love the bleeding Lamb, 
And make his praises known. 

713 

1 Welcome, sweet day of rest 

That saw the Lord arise ; 
Welcome to this reviving breast 
And these rejoicing eyes. 

2 The King himself comes near, 

And feasts his saints to-day ; 
Here we may sit, and see him here, 
And love and praise and pray. 

3 One day amidst the place 

Where my dear God hath been, 
Is sweeter than ten thousand days 
Of pleasurable sin. 
318 



My willing soul would stay 
In such a frame as this. 

And sit and sing herself away 
To everlasting bliss. 



714 



1 How charming is the place 

Where my Redeemer God 

Unveils the beauties of his face, 

And sheds his love abroad 1 

2 Not the fair palaces 

To which the great resort 
Are once to be compared with this, 
Where Jesus holds his court. 

3 Here, on the mercy-seat. 

With radiant glory crowned. 
Our joyful eyes behold him sit 
And smile on all around. 

4 To him their prayers and cries 

Each humble soul presents ; 
He listens to their broken sighs, 
And grants them all their wants. 

5 To them his sovereign will 

He graciously imparts, 
And in return accepts, with smiles, 
The tribute of their hearts. 

6 Give me, O Lord ! a place 

Within thy blest abode, 
Among the children of thy grace. 
The servants of my God. 



THE LORD'S DAY. 



CARLISLE. 



S.M. 




1 The day of praise is done ; 

The evening shadows fall ; 
Yet pass not from us with the sun, 
True Light that lightenest all ! 

2 Around thy throne on high, 

Where night can never be, 
The white-robed harpers of the sky 
Bring ceaseless hymns to thee. 

3 Too faint our anthems here ; 

Too soon of praise we tire ; 



LENTWOOD. 



But oh, the strains how full and clear 
Of that eternal choir ! 

Yet, Lord ! to thy dear will 

If thou attune the heart, 
We in thine angels' music still 

May bear our lower part. 

Shine thou within us, then, 
A day that knows no end. 

Till songs of angels and of men 
In perfect praise shall blend. 




1 Again the day returns of holy rest 
Which, when he made the world, Jehovah 

blest. 
When, like his own, he bade our labors cease, 
And all be piety and all be peace. 

2 Let us devote this consecrated day 

To learn his will, and all we learn obey ; 



So shall he hear when fervently we raise 
Our supplications and our songs of praise. 

3 Father in heaven ! in whom our hopes confide, 
Whose power defends us and whose precepts 

guide, 
In life our guardian and in death our friend. 
Glory supreme be thine till time shall end 

319 



THE LORD'S DAY, 



WATERSTOOK. 



H.M. 




1 All hail the glorious morn 

That saw our Saviour rise, 
With victory bright adorned, 

And triumph in his eyes ; 
Ye saints, extol your risen Lord, 
And sing his praise with sweet accord. 

2 The Conqueror ascends 

In triumph to the skies ; 

USCHER. 



Celestial hosts attend 

To crown his victories ; 
Hark ! they proclaim his glorious name, 
And heaven resounds Immanuel's fame. 

3 Now to the throne above 

Let every saint draw near ; 
There dwells incarnate love ; 

Grace sits triumphant there ; 
See mercy smile, e'en on that throne 
Where once did wrath and justice frown.

Welcome, delightful morn, 

Thou day of sacred rest. 
We hail thy kind return. 

Lord ! make these moments blessed 
From the low train of mortal toys 
We soar to reach immortal joys. 

2 Now may the King descend 
And fill his throne of grace ; 
320 



Thy sceptre. Lord ! extend. 

While saints address thy face ; 
Let sinners feel thy quickening word. 
And learn to know and fear the Lord. 

Descend, celestial Dove ! 

With all thy quickening powers, 
Disclose a Saviour's love. 

And bless these sacred liours; 
Then shall our souls new life obtain, 
Nor Sabbaths be bestowed in vain.

1 Again our earthly cares we leave, 

And in thy courts appear ; 

Again with joyful feet we come 

To meet our Saviour here. 

2 Within these walls let holy peace 

And love and concord dwell ; 
Here give the troubled conscience ease, 
The wounded spirit heal. 

3 The feeling heart, the melting eye, 

The humble mind, bestow, 



And shine upon us from on high 
To make our graces grow. 

May we in faith receive thy word, 
In faith present our prayers, 

And in the presence of our Lord 
Unbosom all our cares. 

Show us some token of thy love 
Our fainting hope to raise. 

And pour thy blessing from above. 
That we may render praise.

Awakes the kindling ray. 
Unseals the eyelids of the morn, 
And pours increasing day. 

2 Oh what a night was that which wrapt 

A guilty world in gloom ! 
Oh what a sun which broke this day 
Triumphant from the tomb ! 
21 



3 This day be grateful homage paid, 

And ioud hosannas sung ; 
Let gladness dwell in every heart, 
And praise on every tongue.

To hail this welcome morn, 
Which scatters blessings from its wings 
On nations yet unborn.

O DAY of rest and gladness, 

day of joy and light, 
O balm of care and sadness, 

Most beautiful, most bright ! 
On thee the high and lowly 

Before the eternal throne 
Sing, Holy, Holy, Holy, 

To God the three in one. 

2 On thee at the creation 

The light first had its birth ; 
On thee for our salvation 

Christ rose from depths of earth 
On thee our Lord victorious 

The Spirit sent from heaven ; 
A.nd thus on thee most glorious 

A triple light was given. 

3 Thou art a cooling fountain 

In life's dry dreary sand ; 

From thee, like Pisgah's mountain, 

We view the promised land ; 
322 



A day of sweet refection, 

A day of holy love, 
A day of resurrection 

From earth to things above. 

4 To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly manna falls ; 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls ; 
Where gospel light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams, 
And living waters flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 

5 New graces ever gaining 

From this our day of rest, 
We reach the rest remaining 

To spirits of the blest ; 
To Holy Ghost be praises, 

To Father and to Son ; 
The church her voice upraises 

To thee, blest three in one I

1 On this day, the first of days, 
God the Father's name we praise ; 
Who, creation's Fount and Spring, 
Did the world from darkness bring. 

2 On this day th' eternal Son 
Over death his triumph won ; 
On this day the Spirit came 
With his gifts of living flame. 

3 Oh, that fervent love to-day 
May in every heart have sway, 
Teaching us to praise aright 
God, the Source of life and light. 

4 Father ! who didst fashion me 
Image of thyself to be, 

Fill me with thy love divine. 
Let my every thought be thine. 

5 Holy Jesus ! may I be 

Dead and buried here with thee ; 
And, by love inflamed, arise 
Unto thee a sacrifice. 

6 Thou who dost all gifts impart, 
Shine, sweet Spirit! in my heart; 



Best of gifts — thyself— bestow ; 
Make me burn thy love to know. 



723 



1 Ere another Sabbath's close, 
Ere again we seek repose. 
Lord ! our songs ascend to thee ; 
At thy feet we bow the knee. 

2 For the mercies of this day, 
For this rest upon our way, 
Thanks to thee alone be given, 
Lord of earth and King of heaven I 

3 Cold our services have been, 
Mingled every prayer with sin, 
But thou canst and wilt forgive ; 
By thy grace alone we live. 

4 Whilst this thorny path we tread. 
May thy love our footsteps lead ; 
When our journey here is past. 
May we rest with thee at last ! 

5 Let these earthly Sabbaths prove 
Foretastes of our joys above. 
While their steps thy pilgrims bea^l 
To the rest which knows no end.

1 Rejoice, rejoice, believers, 

And let your lights appear ; 
The evening is advancing, 

And darker night is near ; 
The Bridegroom is arising, 

And soon he will draw nigh ; 
Up ! pray and watch and wrestle ; 

At midnight comes the cry. 

2 The watchers on the mountain 

Proclaim the Bridegroom near ; 
Go meet him as he cometh 

With hallelujahs clear ; 
The marriage feast is waiting. 

The gates wide open stand ; 
Up, up ! ye heirs of glory, 

The Bridegroom is at hand. 



3 Ye saints, who here in patience 

Your cross and sufferings bore, 
Shall live and reign for ever, 

When sorrow is no more ; 
Around the throne of glory 

The Lamb ye shall behold, 
In triumph cast before him 

Your diadems of gold. 

4 Our Hope and Expectation, 

Jesus ! now appear ; 
Arise, thou Sun so longed for ! 

O'er this benighted sphere ; 
With hearts and hands uplifted, 

We plead, O Lord ! to see 
The day of earth's redemption. 

That brings us unto thee.

Once for favored sinners slain ; 

Thousand thousand saints attending 

Swell the triumph of his train ; 

Hallelujah ! 
Jesus comes, he comes to reign. 

2 Every eye shall now behold him 

Robed in dreadful majesty ; 
Those who set at naught and sold him. 
Pierced and nailed him to the tree. 

Deeply wailing, 
Shall the true Messiah see. 

3 Every island, sea and mountain, 

Heaven and earth, shall flee away ;

Take thy pining exiles home ; 

All creation 
Travails, groans and bids thee come.

High on thine eternal throne ;

Claim the kingdom for thine own ;

1 The church has waited long 

Her absent Lord to see, 
And still in loneliness she waits, 
A friendless stranger she. 

2 Age after age has gone, 

Sun after sun has set, 
And still in weeds of widowhood 
She weeps a mourner yet. 

3 Saint after saint on earth 

Has lived and loved and died, 
And as they left us one by one 
We laid them side by side — 

4 We laid them down to sleep. 

But not in hope forlorn ; ' 

We laid them but to ripen there 
Till the last glorious morn. 

5 the whole creation groans. 

And waits to hear that voice 

That shall restore her comeliness. 

And make her wastes rejoice. 

6 Come, Lord ! and wipe away 

The curse, the sin, the stain. 
And make this blighted world of ours 
Thine own fair world again. 

728 

1 Come, Lord ! and tarry not ; 

Bring the long looked-for day ; 
;i26 



Oh, why these years of waiting here, 
These ages of delay ? 

2 Come, for thy saints still wait ; 

Daily ascends their sigh : 
The Spirit and the Bride say, Come 1 
Dost thou not hear the cry ? 

3 Come, for the good are few. 

They lift the voice in vain ; 
Faith waxes fainter on the earth, 
And love is on the wane. 

4 Come, for love waxes cold, 

Its steps are faint and slow ; 
Faith now is lost in unbelief; 
Hope's lamp burns dim and low. 

5 Come, and make all things new, 

Build up this ruined earth. 
Restore our faded paradise, 
Creation's second birth. 

6 Come, for creation groans, 

Impatient of thy Ltay, 
Worn out with these long years of ill. 
These ages of delay. 

7 Come, and begin thy reign 

Of everlasting peace ; 
Come, take the kingdom to thyself. 
Great King of righteousness !

1 Hark ! the song of jubilee, 

Loud as mighty thunders roar, 
Or the fuUness of the sea 

When it breaks upon the shore ; 
Hallelujah ! for the Lord 

God omnipotent shall reign ; 
Hallelujah ! let the word 

Echo round the earth and main. 

2 Hallelujah ! hark ! the sound 

From the centre to the skies 
Wakes above, beneath, around, 

All creation's harmonies. 
See Jehovah's banner furled. 

Sheathed his sword, he speaks — 'tis done ; 
And the kingdoms of this world 

Are the kingdoms of his Son. 

3 " He shall reign from pole to pole 

With illimitable sway ; 
He shall reign when, like a scroll. 
Yonder heavens have passed away ; 



Then the end : beneath his rod, 
Man's last enemy shall fall ; 

Hallelujah ! Christ in God, 
God in Christ, is all in all." 



730 



1 See the ransom'd millions stand. 
Palms of conquest in their hand ; 
This before the throne their strain, 
" Hell is vanquish'd ; death is slain ; 
Blessing, honor, glory, might. 

Are the Conqueror's native right ; 
Thrones and powers before him fiill, 
Lamb of God and Lord of all !" 

2 Hasten, Lord ! the promised hour ; 
Come in glory and in power; 
Still thy foes are unsubdued ; 
Nature sighs to be renew'd ; 
Time has nearly reach'd its sum ; 

All things with the bride say " Come" I 
Jesus ! whom all worlds adore. 
Come, and reign for evermore !

1 God ! thy grace and blessing give 

To us who on thy name attend, 

That we this mortal life may live 

Regardful of our journey's end. 

2 Teach us to know that Jesus died 

And rose again our souls to save ; 
Teach us to take him as our guide, 
Our help from childhood to the grave. 

3 Then shall not death with terror come, 

But welcome as a bidden guest. 
The herald of a better home. 
The messenger of peace and rest. 



732 



1 Why should we start and fear to die? 

What tim'rous worms we mortals are ! 
Death is the gate of endless joy. 
And yet we dread to enter there. 

2 The pains, the groans and dying strife 

Fright our approaching souls away ; 
Still we shrink back again to life, 
Fond of our prison and our clay. 

3 01 , if my Lord would come and meet, 

My soul would stretch her wings in haste. 
Fly fearless through death's iron gate. 
Nor feel the terrors as she passed. 

4 Jesus can make a dying bed 

Feel soft as downy pillows are, 
328 



While on his breast I lean mj' head, 
And breathe my life out sweetly there. 

733 

1 The hour of my departure's come ; 

I hear the voice that calls me home ; 
At last, Lord ! let trouble cease, 
And let thy servant die in peace. 

2 The race appointed I have run, 
The combat 's o'er, the prize is won ; 
And now my witness is on high. 
And now my record 's in the sky. 

3 Not in mine innocence I trust ; 
I bow before thee in the dust ; 

And through my Saviour's blood alone 
I look for mercy at thy throne. 

4 I leave the world without a tear, 
Save for the friends I held so dear ; 
To heal their sorrows, Lord ! descend, 
And to the friendless prove a Friend. 

5 I come, I come, at thy command ; 
I give my spirit to thy hand ; 
Stretch forth thine everlasting arms, 
And shield me in the last alarms. 

6 The hour of my departure 's come , 

I hear the voice that calls me home ; 
Now, my God ! let trouble cease ; 
Now let thy servant die in peace.

1 So fades the lovely, blooming flower, 
Frail smiling solace of an hour ; 

So soon our transient comforts fly, 
And pleasure only blooms to die. 

2 Is there no kind, no lenient art 
To heal the anguish of the heart ? 
Spirit of grace ! be ever nigh. 
Thy comforts are not made to die. 

3 Then gentle patience smiles on pain, 
And dying hope revives again ; 

Hope wipes the tear from sorrow's eye. 
And faith points upward to the sky. 

735 

1 Asleep in Jesus ! blessed sleep. 
From which none ever wakes to weep ; 
A calm and undisturbed repose, 
Unbroken by the last of foes. 

2 Asleep in Jesus ! oh how sweet 
To be for such a slumber meet ! 
With holy confidence to sing 

That death has lost his venom'd sting! 

3 Asleep in J ?sus ! peaceful rest, 
Whose waking is supremely blest ; 
No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour 
That manifests the Saviour's power. 



4 Asleep in Jesus ! oh, for me 
May such a blissful refuge be ; 
Securely shall my ashes lie. 
Waiting the summons from on high. 

736 

1 How blest the righteous when he dies, 

When sinks a weary soul to rest! 
How mildly beam the closing eyes ! 
How gently heaves th' expiring breast! 

2 So fades a summer cloud away ; 

So sinks the gale when storms are o'er ; 
So gently shuts the eye of day ; 
So dies a wave along the shore. 

3 A holy quiet reigns around, 

A calm which life nor death destroys ; 
And naught disturbs that peace profound 
Which his unfettered soul enjoys. 

4 Farewell, conflicting hopes and fears, 

Where lights and shades alternate dwell 
How bright th' unchanging morn appears I 
Farewell, inconstant world, farewell ! 

5 Life's labor done, as sinks the clay. 

Light from its load the spirit flies; 

While heaven and earth combine to say, 

" How blest the righteous when he dies I'

1 Unveil thy bosom, faithful tomb, 

Take this new treasure to thy trust, 
And give these sacred relics room 
To seek a slumber in the dust. 

2 Nor pain nor grief nor anxious fear 

Invades thy bounds ; no mortal woes 
Can reach the peaceful sleeper here, 
While angels watch his soft repose.

Passed through the grave, and blessed the 
Rest here, blest saint, till from his throne 
The morning break and pierce thfi shade.

Attend, O earth ! his sovereign word ; 
Restore thy trust a glorious form, 
Called to ascend to meet the Lord

Now, faithful God ! do thou once more 
In death deliver me.

And dost perform thy word ;

1 Oh, for a faith that will not shrink 

Though pressed by every foe, 
That will not tremble on the brink 
Of any earthly woe ; 

2 That will not murmur nor complain 

Beneath the chastening rod. 
But in the hour of grief or pain 
Will lean upon its God — 

3 A faith that shines more bright and clear 

When tempests rage without, 
That when in danger knows no fear, 
In darkness feels no doubt ; 

4 A faith that keeps the narrow way 

Till life's last hour is fled, 
And with a pure and heavenly ray 
Lights up a dying bed. 

5 Lord ! give us such a faith as this. 

And then, whatever may come, 
We '11 taste e'en here the hallowed bliss 
Of an eternal home. 

740 

1 Faith adds new charms to earthly bliss, 

And saves me from its snares, 
Its aid in every duty brings. 
And softens all my cares. 

2 The wounded conscience knows its power 

The healing balm to give ; 
That balm the saddest heart can cheer. 
And make the dying live. 



3 Wide it unveils celestial worlds, 

Where deathless pleasures reign. 
And bids me seek my portion there, 
Mor bids me seek in vain ; 

4 Shows me the precious promise, sealed 

With the Redeemer's blood. 
And helps my feeble hope to rest 
Upon a faithful God. 

5 There, there unshaken would I rest 

Till this vile body dies, 
And then, on faith's triumphant wings, 
At once to glory rise. 



741 



1 Oh, for an overcoming faith 

To cheer my dying hours. 
To triumph o'er the monster Death, 
And all his frightful powers. 

2 Joyful with all the strength T have 

My quiv'ring lips should sing, 
" Where is thy boasted vict'ry, grave. 
And where the monster's sting ?" 

3 If sin be pardon'd, I 'm secure, 

Death has no sting beside ; 
The law gives sin its damning power 
But Christ, my Ransom, died. 

4 Now to the God of victory 

Immortal thanks be paid, 
Who makes us conqu'rors while we die 
Through Christ our living Head.

1 Hear what the voice from heaven proclaims 

For all the pious dead : 
" Sweet is the savor of their names, 
A nd soft their sleeping-bed. 

2 " They die in Jesus, and are blessed — 

How kind their slumbers are, 
From sufferings and from sins released, 
And freed from every snare. 

3 " Far from this world of toil and strife, 

They 're present with the Lord ; 
The labors of their mortal life 
End in a large reward." 



743 



1 Teach me the measure of my days, 

Thou Maker of my frame ! 
I would survey life's narrow space, 
And learn how frail I am. 

2 A span is all that we can boast, 

An inch or two of time ; 
Man is but vanity and dust 
In all his flower and prime. 

3 See the vain race of mortals move 

Like shadows o'er the plain, 
They rage and strive, desire and love, 
Bui all their noise is vain. 

4 What should I wish or wait for, then, 

From creatures, earth and dust ? 
They make our expectations vain. 
And disappoint our trust. 
332 



5 Now I forbid my carnal hope. 
My fond desires recall ; 
I give my mortal interest up. 
And make my God my all; 

744 

1 Why do we mourn departing friends 

Or shake at death's alarms? 
'T is but the voice that Jesus sends 
To call them to his arms. 

2 Are we not tending upward too 

As fast as time can move ? 
Nor should we wish the hours more slow 
To keep us from our love. 

3 Why should we tremble to convey 

Their bodies to the tomb ? 
There the dear flesh of Jesus lay. 
And left a long perfume. 

4 The graves of all the saints he blessed, 

And softened every bed ; 
Where should the dying members rest 
But with their dying Head ? 

5 Thence he arose, ascended high. 

And showed our feet the way ; 
Up to the Lord our flesh shall fly 
At the great rising day. 

6 Then let the last loud trumpet sound, 

And bid our kindred rise; 
Awake, ye nations under ground ; 
Ye saints, ascend the skies.

1 Through sorrow's night and danger's path, 

Amid the deepening gloom, 
We, soldiers of an injured King, 
Are marching to the tomb. 

2 There, when the turmoil is no more, 

And all our powers decay. 
Our cold remains in solitude 
Shall sleep the years away. 

3 Our labors done, securely laid 

In this our last retreat, 
Unheeded o'er our silent dust 
The storms of life shall beat. 

4 Yet not thus buried or extinct 

The vital spark shall lie ; 
For o'er life's wreck that spark shall rise 
To seek its kindred sky. 

5 These ashes too, this little dust, 

Our Father's care shall keep. 
Till the last angel rise and break 
The long and dreary sleep. 

6 Then love's soft dew o'er every eye 

Shall shed its mildest rays. 
And the long-silent voice awake 
With shouts of endless praise. 



746 

1 'T IS sweet to rest in lively hope. 

That when my change shall come 
Angels will hover round my bed, 
And waft my spirit home. 

2 There shall my disimprisoned soul 

Behold him, and adore ; 
Be with his likeness satisfied. 
And grieve and sin no more ; 

3 Shall see him wear that very flesh 

On which my guilt was lain. 
His love intense, his merit fresh. 
As though but newly slain. 

4 Soon too my slumbering dust shall hear 

The trumpet's quickening sound ; 
And by my Saviour's power rebuilt, 
At his right hand be found. 

5 These eyes shall see him in that day, 

The Lord that died for me. 
And I with all his saints shall say, 
Lord ! who is like to thee ? 

6 If such the views which grace unfolds. 

Weak as it is below. 
What raptures must the church above 
In Jesus' presence know !

To take thy ransomed people home, 

Shall I among them stand ?

Who sometimes am afraid to die,

What if my name should be left out 

When thou for them shalt call?

Among thy saints let me be found 
Whene'er the archangel's trump shall sound, 

To see thy smiling face ; 
Then loudest of the throng I '11 sing, 
While heaven's resounding mansions ring 

With shouts of sovereign grace.

1 Death is no more among our foes 

Since Christ, the mightv Conqueror, rose ; 
Both power and sting the Saviour broke ; 
He died, and gave the finished stroke.

Feel the archangel's trumpet sound ; 
Then shall the grave's dark cavern shake. 
And joyful all the saints shall wake.

3 Bodies and souls shall then unite, 
Arrayed in glory, strong and bright, 
And all his saints will Jesus bring 
His face to see, his love to sing. 

4 Oh, may I live with Jesus nigh, 
And sleep in Jesus when I die ; 
Then, joyful, when from death I wake, 
I shall eternal bliss partake.

Shakes the wide earth and cleaves the tombs 
Before him burns devouring fire.

Then lift your heads, ye saints, on high,

1 God of the living ! in whose eyes 
Unveiled the whole creation lies, 
All souls are thine ; we must not say- 
That those are dead who pass away ; 
From this our world of flesh set free, 
We know them living unto thee. 

2 Released from earthly toil and strife, 
With thee is hidden still their life ; 
Thine are their thoughts, their works, their 

powers. 
All thine, and yet most truly ours ; 
For well we know, where'er they be, 
Our dead are living unto thee. 

3 Not spilt like water on the ground, 

Not wrapped in dreamless sleep profound, 
336 



Not wandering in unknown despair 
Beyond thy voice, thine arm, thy care, 
Not left to lie like fallen tree, 
Not dead, but living unto thee. 

4 Thy word is true, thy will is just ; 

To thee we leave them, Lord ! in trust. 
And bless thee for the love which gave 
Thy Son ta fill a human grave. 
That none might fear that world to see 
Where all are living unto thee. 

5 Breather into man of breath ! 
Holder of the keys of death 1 
Giver of the life within ! 

Save us from death, the death of sin, 
That body, soul and spirit be 
For ever living unto thee.

1 And must this body die, 

This mortal frame decay? 
And must these active limbs of mine 
Lie mould'ring in the clay ? 

2 God my Redeemer lives, 

And often from the skies 
Looks down and watches all my dust, 
Till he shall bid it rise. 

3 Arrayed in glorious grace 

Shall these vile bodies shine. 
And every shape and every face 
Look heav'nly and divine. 

4 These lively hopes we owe 

To Jesus' dying love ; 
"We would adore his grace below, 
And sing his power above.

1 Oh for the death of those 

Who slumber in the Lord ; 

Oh be like theirs my last repose, 

Like theirs my last reward!

In silent hope may lie 
Till the last trumpet's joyful sound

3 Their ransomed spirits soar. 

On wings of faith and love. 
To meet the Saviour they adore. 
And reign with him above.

Embalmed with all our hearts can give,

Oh be like theirs my last repose, 

Like theirs my last reward !

1 It is not death to die, 

To leave this weary road, 
And midst the brotherhood on high 
To be at home with God. 

2 It is not death to close 

The eye long dimmed by tears, 
And wake in glorious repose 
To spend eternal years. 

3 It is not death to bear 

The wrench that sets us free 
From dungeon chain, to breathe the air 
Of boundless liberty. 

4 It is not death to fling 

Aside this sinful dust, 
And rise on strong exulting wing 
To live among the just. 

5 Jesus, thou Prince of life I 

Thy chosen cannot die ; 
Like thee, they conquer in the strife, 
To reign with thee on high.

6 Then, O my Lord ! prepare 

My soul for that glad day ; 
Oh, wash me in thy precious blood, 
And take my sins away.

1 As o'er the past my memory strays, 

Why heaves the secret sigh ? 
'T is that I mourn departed days, 
Still unprepared to die. 

2 The world and worldly things beloved 

My anxious thoughts employed, 
And time, unhallowed, unimproved. 
Presents a fearful void. 



3 Yet, Holy Father ! wild despair 

Chase from my laboring breast ; 
Thy grace it is which prompts the prayer ; 
That grace can do the rest. 

4 My life's brief remnant all be thine ; 

And when thy sure decree 
Bids me this fleeting breath resign, 
Oh, speed my soul to thee.

1 " For ever with the Lord !" 

Amen ! so let it be ; 
Life from the dead is in that word, 
'T is immortality. 

2 Here, in the body pent, 

Absent from him I roam ; 
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent 
A day's march nearer home. 

3 " For ever with the Lord !" 

Father ! if 'tis thy will, 

57". OSWALD. 



The promise of that faithful word 
E'en here to me fulfill. 

4 So when my latest breath 

Shall rend the veil in twain, 
By death I shall escape from death, 
And life eternal gain. 

5 Knowing as I am known, 

How shall I love that word ! 
And oft repeat before the throne, 
" For ever with the Lord !"

1 Cease, ye mourners, cease to languish. 

O'er the grave of those you love ; 
Pain and death and night and anguish 
Enter not the world above. 

2 While our silent steps are straying, 

Lonelv, through night's deepening shade. 
Glory's brightest beams are playing 
Round the happy Christian's head. 

3 Light and peace at once deriving 

From the hand of God most high, 
340 



In his glorious presence living. 
They shall never, never die. 

Endless pleasure pain excluding, 
Sickness there no more can come ; 

There no fear of woe, intruding. 
Sheds o'er heaven a moment's gloom. 

Now, ye mourners, cease to languish. 
O'er the grave of those you love ; 

Far removed from pain and anguish, 
They are chanting hymns a' ove.

1 Gentle Shepherd ! thou hast stilled 

Now thy little lamb's long weeping ; 
Ah ! how peaceful, pale and mild 

In its narrow bed 't is sleeping ! 
And no sigh of anguish sore 
Heaves that little bosom more. 

2 In this world of care and pain, 

Lord ! thou wouldst no longer leave it ; 



To the sunny heavenly plain 

Dost thou now in joy receive it 
Clothed in robes of spotless white, 
Xow it dwells with thee in light. 

3 Ah, Lord Jesus ! grant that we 

Where it lives may soon be living, 
And the lovely pastures see 

That its heaVenly food are giving. 
Then the gain of death we '11 prove, 
Though thou take what most we love.

1 When, rising from the bed of death, 

O'erwhelmed with guilt and fear, 
I see my Maker face to face, 
Oh, how shall I appear? 

2 If yet, while pardon may be found 

And mercy may be sought, 
My heart with inward horror shrinks, 
And trembles at the thought, 

3 When thou, Lord ! shalt stand disclosed 

In majesty severe, 

GORTON. 



And sit in judgment on my soul, 
Oh, how shall I appear ? 

4 Then see the sorrows of my heart 

Ere yet it be too late ; 
My pardon speak, for Jesus' sake, 
And bid my fears abate. 

5 For never shall my soul despair 

Her pardon to procure. 
Who knows thine only Son has died 
To make her pardon sure.

Prepare, my soul ! to meet him.

At the last trumpet's sounding, 
Caught up to meet him in the skies. 
With joy their Lord surrounding ;

On those prepared to meet him.

On clouds of glory seated ! 
Beneath his cross iView the day 
"When heaven and earth shall pass away, 

And thus prepare to meet him. 




1 That awful day will surely come, 

Th' appointed hour makes haste, 
When I must stand before my Judge, 
And pass the solemn test. 

2 Thou lovely Chief of all my joys ! 

Thou Sovereign of my heart! 
How could I bear to hear thy voice 
Pronounce the sound, Depart ! 

3 Oh, wretched state of deep despair, 

To see my God remove, 



And fix my doleful station where 
I must not taste his love. 

Jesus ! I throw my arms around. 
And hang upon thy breast ; 

Without one gracious smile from thee 
My spirit cannot rest. 

Oh, tell me that my worthless name 

Is graven on thy hands ; 
Show me some promise in thy book 

Where my salvation stands.

And must the dead arise? 
And not a single soul escape 
His all-discerning eyes?

By which the Saviour bled. 
And the last awful day shall pour 
His blessings on your head.

Nor all of death to die.

There is a life above,

Unmeasured by the flight of years, 
And all that life is love. 

4 There is a death whose pang 

Outlasts the fleeting breath ; 
Oh, what eternal horrors hang 
Around the second death I

Teach us that death to shun, 
Lest we be banished from thy face, 
And evermore undone.

1 Hark ! how the choral song of heaven 

Swells full of peace and joy above ! 
Hark ! how they strike their golden harps, 
And raise the tuneful notes of love ! 

2 No anxious care nor thrilling grief, 

No deep despair nor gloomy v^'oe, 
They feel while high their lofty strains 
In noblest, sweetest concord flow. 

3 When shall we join the heavenly host 

Who sing Immanuel's praise on high, 
And leave behind our fears and doubts, 
To swell the chorus of the sky ? 

4 Oh, come, thou rapture-bringing morn, 

And usher in this joyful day ; 
We long to see thy rising sun 
Drive all these clouds of grief away. 

770 

1 Oh for a sweet, inspiring ray 

To animate our feeble strains, 
From the bright realms of endless day, 
The blissful realms where Jesus reigns. 

2 There, low before his glorious throne. 

Adoring saints and angels fall. 
And with delightful worship own 
His smile their bliss, their heaven, their all. 

3 Immortal glories crown his head. 

While tuneful hallelujahs rise, 
And love and joy and triumph spread 
Through all th' assemblies of the skies. 
346 



4 He smiles, and seraphs tune their songs 

To boundless rapture while they gaze ; 
Ten thousand thousand joyful tongues 
Resound his everlasting praise. 

5 There all the foll'wers of the Lamb 

Shall join at last the heavenly choir ; 
Oh, may the joy-inspiring theme 
Awake our faith and warm desire. 

6 Dear Saviour ! let thy Spirit seal 

Our interest in that blissful place. 
Till death remove this mortal veil. 
And we behold thy lovely face." 



771 



1 Now let our souls on wings sublime 
Rise from the vanities of time. 
Draw back the parting veil, and see 
The glories of eternity. 

2 Born by a new celestial birth, 

Why should we grovel here on earth ? 
Why grasp at transitory toys. 
So near to heaven's eternal joys? 

3 Shall aught beguile us on the road 
While we are traveling back to God ? 
For strangers into life we come, 
And dying is but going home. 

4 To dwell with God, to feel his love. 
Is the full heaven enjoyed above, 
And the sweet expectation now 

Is the young dawu of heaven below

1 HAPPY saints, who dwell in light 
And walk with Jesus clothed in white, 
Safe landed on that peaceful shore 
Where pilgrims meet to part no more. 

2 Released from sin and toil and grief, 
Death was their gate to endless life ; 
An opened gate to let them fly 
And build their happy nest on high. 

3 And now they range the heavenly plains, 
And sing their hymns in melting strains ; 

WINCHESTER, NEW. 



And now their souls begin to prove 
The heights and depths of Jesus' love. 

He cheers them with eternal smile ; 
They sing hosannas all the while ; 
Or, overwhelmed with rapture sweet, 
Sink down adoring at his feet. 

Ah, Lord ! with tardy steps I creep. 
And sometimes sing and sometimes weep ; 
Yet strip me of this house of clay. 
And I will sing as loud as they.

But the bright world to which I go 
Hath joys substantial and sincere ; 
When shall I wake and find me there?

I shall be near and like my God, 
And flesh and sin no more control

Then burst the chains with sweet surprise.

1 As when the weary traveler gains 

The height of some o'erlooking hill, 
His heart revives, if cross the plains 
He eyes his home, though distant still. 

2 So when the Christian pilgrim views. 

By faith, his mansion in the skies, 
The sight his fainting strength renews. 
And wings his speed to reach the prize. 

^ 'T is there, he says, I am to dwell 
With Jesus, in the realms of day ; 
Then I shall bid my cares farewell, 
And he will wipe my tears away. 

4 Jesus ! on thee our hope depends 
To lead us on to thine abode. 
Assured our home will make amends 
For all our toil when on the road.

1 Descend from heaven, immortal Dove ! 

Stoop down, and take us on thy wings, 
And mount, and bear us far above 
The reach of these inferior things. 

2 Oh, for a sight, a blissful sight, 

Of our almighty Father's throne ; 
There sits the Saviour, crowned with light. 
Clothed in a body like our own. 

3 Adoring saints around him stand. 

And thrones and powers before him fall ; 
The God shines gracious through the man, 
And sheds sweet glories on them all.

While to their golden harps they sing. 
And sit on every heavenly hill. 
And spread the triumph of their King !

1 " We 've no abiding city here." 

This may distress the worldly mind, 
But should not cost the saint a tear, 
Who hopes a better rest to find. 

2 " We 've no abiding city here." 

Sad truth were this to be our home , 
But let this thought our spirit cheer : 
" We seek a city yet to come." 

3 " We 've no abiding city here." 

Then let us live as pilgrims do ; 

Let not the world our rest appear, 

But let us haste from all below. 

4 " We 've no abiding city here." 

We seek a city out of sight, 
Zion its name, the Lord is there. 
It shines with everlasting light. 

5 sweet abode of peace and love 

Where pilgrims freed from toil are blest 
Had I the pinions of the dove, 
I 'd flee to thee, and be at rest. 

6 But hush, my soul, nor dare repine ; 

The time my God appoints is best ; 
While here to do his will be mine, 
And his to fix my time of rest.

Above these gloomy shades 
To those bright worlds beyond the sky 
Which sorrow ne'er invades. 

2 There joys unseen by mortal eyes 

Or reason's feeble ray 
In ever-blooming prospect rise, 
Unconscious of decay. 

3 Lord ! send a beam of light divine 

To guide our upward aim ; 
With one reviving touch of thine 
Our languid hearts inflame.

Our ardent wishes rise 
To those bright scenes where pleasures 
Immortal, in the skies. [spring,

And look within the veil ; 
There springs of endless pleasure rise, 
The waters never fail. 

2 There I behold with sweet delight

And strong afiections fix my sight 
On God's incarnate Son. 

3 His promise stands for ever firm. 

His grace shall ne'er depart ; 
He binds my name upon his arm. 
And seals it on his heart.

To that celestial place. 
Where I for ever hope to dwell 
Near my Redeemer's face.

Through every heavenly street. 
And say there 's naught below the sun 
That 's worthy of thy feet. 

2 There, on a high, majestic throne, 

Th' almighty Father reigns. 
And sheds his glorious goodness down 
On all the blissful plains. 

3 Bright, like a sun, the Saviour sits, 

And spreads eternal noon ; 
No evenings there, nor gloomy nights, 
To want the feeble moon. 

4 Amidst those ever-shining skies 

Behold the sacred Dove ; 
While banished sin and sorrow flies 
From all the realms of love. 

5 But oh, what beams of heavenly grace 

Transport them all the while ! 
Ten thousand smiles from Jesus' fare, 
And love in every smile !

That joyful hour, appear. 
When I shall leave this house of clay 
To dwell among them there ?

1 Lo ! what a glorious sight appears 

To our believing eyes ! 
The earth and sea are passed away, 
And the old rolling skies. 

2 From the third heaven, where God resides, 

That holy, happy place. 
The new Jerusalem comes down. 
Adorned with sliining grace. 

3 Attending angels shout for joy. 

And the bright armies sing : 
" Mortals, behold the sacred seat 
Of your descending King. 

i " The God of glory down to men 
Removes his blest abode — 
Men, the dear objects of his grace, 
And he the loving God. 

5 " His own soft hand shall wipe the tears 

From every weeping eye. 
And pains and groans and griefs and fears, 
And death itself, shall die." 

6 How long, dear Saviour ! oh how long 

Shall this bright hour delay ? 

Fly swifter round, ye wheels of time. 

And bring the welcome day.

1 There is a land of pure delight 

Where saints immortal reign ; 
Infinite day excludes the night. 
And pleasures banish pain. 

2 There everlasting spring abides. 

And never-with'ring flow'rs ; 

Death, like a narrow sea, divides 

This heav'nly land from ours. 

3 Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood 

Stand dressed in living green ; 

So to the Jews old Canaan stood, 

While Jordan rolled between. 

4 But tim'rous mortals start and shrink 

To cross this narrow sea. 
And linger, shiv'ring, on the brink, 
And fear to launch away. 

5 Oh, could we make our doubts remove. 

These gloomy doubts that rise. 
And see the Canaan that we love 
With unbeclouded eyes, 

6 Could we but climb where Moses stood, 

And view the landscape o'er. 
Not Jordan's stream nor death's cold flcod 
Should fright us from the shore.

1 Father ! 1 long, I faint, to see 

The place of thine abode ; 
I 'd leave thine earthly courts, and flee 
Up to thy seat, my God ! 

2 Here I behold thy distant face, 

And 't is a pleasing sight ; 
But to abide in thine embrace 
Is infinite delight. 

3 I 'd part with all the joys of sense 

To gaze upon thy throne ; 
Pleasure springs fresh for ever thence, 
Unspeakable, unknown. 

4 There all the heavenly hosts are seen, 

In shining ranks they move. 
And drink immortal vigor in 
With wonder and with love. 

5 Then at thy feet, with awful fear, 

Th' adoring armies fall ; 
With joy they shrink to nothing there 
Before th' eternal All.

And cast a wishful eye 
To Canaan's fair and happy land. 
Where my possessions lie. 

2 Oh, the transporting, rapturous scene 

That rises to my sight ! 
Sweet fields arrayed in living green, 
And rivers of delight. 

3 O'er all those wide-extended plains 

Shines one eternal day ; 
There God the Son for ever reigns. 
And scatters light away. 

4 No chilling winds, no pois'nous breath, 

Can reach that healthful shore ; 
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death. 
Are felt and feared no more. 

5 When shall I reach that happy place, 

And be for ever blest? 
When shall I see my Father's face, 
And in his bosom rest "^ 

6 Filled with delight, my raptured soul 

Would here no longer stay ; 

Though Jordan's waves should round me 

Fearless I 'd launch away. [roll.

1 O MOTHER dear, Jerusalem ! 

When shall I come to thee ? 
When shall my sorrows have an end ? 
Thy joys when shall I see ? 

2 happy harbor of God's saints ! 

sweet and pleasant soil ! 
In thee no sorrow can be found, 
Nor grief, nor care, nor toil. 

3 Thy walls are made of precious stones. 

Thy bulwarks diamond square ; 
Thy gates are all of Orient pearl ; 
6 God ! if I were there ! 

4 Oh, passing happy were my state 

Might I be worthy found 
To wait upon my God and King, 
His praises there to sound. 

785 

1 MY sweet home, Jerusalem ! 

Thy joys when shall I see? 
The King that sitteth on thy throne 
In his felicity ? 

2 Thy gardens and thy goodly walks 

Continually are green, 
Where grow such sweet and pleasant flowers 
As no where else are seen. 

3 Right through thy streets with pleasingsound 

The flood of life doth flow ; 

And on the banks, on either side, 

The trees of life do grow. 
352 



4 Those trees each month yield ripened fruit ; 

For evermore they spring. 
And all the nations of the earth 
To thee their honors bring. 

5 O mother dear, Jerusalem ! 

AVhen shall I come to thee ? 
When shall my sorrows have an end? 
Thy joys when shall I see ? 

786 

1 Give me the wings of faith to rise 

Within the veil, and see 
The saints above, how great their joys, 
How bright their glories be. 

2 Once they were mourning here below, 

And wet their couch with tears ; 
They wrestled hard as we do now, 
With sin and doubts and fears. 

3 I asked them whence their vict'ry came ; 

They, with united breath. 
Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb, 
Their triumph to his death. 

4 They marked the footsteps that he trod, 

His zeal inspired their breast. 
And foll'wing their incarnate God, 
Possessed the promised rest. 

5 Our glorious Leader claims our praise 

For his own pattern given. 
While the long cloud of witnesses 
Show the same path to heaven. 



HE A VEN. 



HEAVENLY FOLD. 



CM. D. 




1 Far from these narrow scenes of night 

Unbounded glories rise, 
And realms of infinite delight 
Unknown to mortal eyes. 

2 Fair distant land ! could mortal eyes 

But half its joys explore, 
How would our spirits long to rise 
And dwell on earth no more ! 

3 There pain and sickness never come, 

And grief no more complains ; 
Health triumphs in immortal bloom. 
And endless pleasure reigns. 

i Nc cloud those blissful regions know, 
For ever bright and fair ; 
For sin, the source of mortal woe, 
Can never enter there. 

5 There no alternate night is known, 

Nor sun's faint sickly ray ; 

But glory from the sacred throne 

Spreads everlasting day. 
23 



Oh, may the heavenly prospect fire 
Our hearts with ardent love. 

Till wings of faith and strong desire 
Bear every thought above. 

788 

1 There is a fold whence none can stray. 

And pastures ever green, 
Where sultry sun, or stormy day, 
Or night is never seen. 

2 Far up the everlasting hills 

In God's own light it lies ; 
His smile its vast dimension fills 
"With joy that never dies. 

3 Soon at his feet my soul will lie 

In life's last struggling breath ; 
But I shall only seem to die — 
I shall not taste of death. 

4 Far from this guilty world to be 

Exempt from toil and strife, 

To spend eternity with thee, 

My Saviour ! this is life.

1 When I can read my title clear 

To mansions in the skies, 
I bid farewell to every fear, 
And wipe my weeping eyes. 

2 Should earth against my soul engage, 

And hellish darts be hurled. 

Then I can smile at Satan's rage. 

And face a frowning world. 

3 Let cares like a wild deluge come, 

And storms of sorrow fall, 
May I but safely reach my home, 
My God, my heav'n, my all. 

4 There shall I bathe my weary soul 

In seas of heav'nly rest. 
And not a wave of trouble roll 
Across my peaceful breast.

Name ever dear to me. 



WOODLAND. 



When shall my labors have an end, 
In joy and peace and thee ? 

2 There happier bow'rs than Eden's bloom, 

Nor sin nor sorrow know ; 
Blest seats, through rude and stormy scenes 
I onward press to you. 

3 Why should I shrink at pain and woe. 

Or feel at death dismay ? 
I 've Canaan's goodly land in view, 
And realms of endless day. 

4 Apostles, martyrs, prophets, there 

Around my Saviour stand, 
And soon my friends in Christ below 
Will join the glorious band. 



5 Jerusalem, my happy home. 
My soul still pants for thee; 
Then shall my labors have an 
When I thy joys shall see.

Since Jesus hath lain there, I dread not its

There sweet be my rest till he bid me arise 
To hail him in triumph descending the skies.

Away from yon heaven, that blissful abode 
Where the rivers of pleasure flow o'er the

And the noontide of glory eternally reigns?

Sink heart and voice opprest.

What holy joys are there, 
What radiancy of glory,

All jubilant with song. 
And bright with many an angel.

The song of them that feast.

Have conquered in the fight.

Oh, royal land of flowers!

Brief sorrow, short-lived care ; 
The life that knows no ending. 

The tearless life, is there ; 
Oh, happy retribution ! 

Short toil, eternal rest ; 
For mortals and for sinners, 

A mansion with the blest 

2 There grief is turned to pleasure — 

Such pleasure as below 
No human voice can utter, 

No human heart can know ; 
And after fleshly scandal, 

And after this world's night, 
And after storm and whirlwind, 

Is calm and joy and light 

3 And there is David's fountain. 

And life in fullest glow ; 
A nd there the light is golden, 

And milk and honey flow ; 
The light that hath no evening. 

The health that hath no sore, 
The life that hath no ending, 

But lasteth evermore. 



1 For thee, dear, dear country ! 

Mine eyes their vigils keep, 
For very love, beholding 

Thy happy name, they weep ; 
The mention of thy glory 

Is unction to the breast, 
And medicine in sickness. 

And love and life and rest. 

2 one, only mansion I 

O Paradise of joy ! 
Where tears are ever banished 

And smiles have no alloy, 
The Lamb is all thy splendor. 

The Crucified thy praise ; 
His laud and benediction 

Thy ransomed people raise. 

3 sweet and blessed country, 

The home of God's elect ! 
sweet and blessed country, 

That eager hearts expect !

To that dear land of rest, 
Who art, with God the Father, 

And Spirit, ever blest

Rise, my soul, and haste away,

Pants to view his glorious face. 

Upward tends to his abode, 
To rest in his embrace.

Press onward to the prize ; 
Soon our Saviour will return, 

Triumphant in the skies. 
Yet a season, and you know 

Happy entrance will be given ; 
All our sorrows left below, 

And earth exchanged for heaven.

1 High in yonder realms of light 

Dwell the raptured saints above, 
Far beyond our feeble sight, 

Happy in Immaniiel's love ; 
Pilgrims in this vale of tears. 

Once they knew, like us below, 
Gloomy doubts, distressing fears. 

Torturing pain and heavy woe. 

2 'Mid the chorus of the skies, 

'Mid th' angelic lyres above. 
Hark ! their songs melodious rise — 

Songs of praise to Jesus' love ; 
Happy spirits, they are fled 

Where no grief can entrance find, 
Lulled to rest the aching head. 

Soothed the anguish of the mind. 

3 All is tranquil and serene. 

Calm and undisturbed repose ; 
There no cloud can intervene. 

There no angry tempest blows ; 
Every tear is wiped away. 

Sighs no more shall heave the breast : 
Night is lost in endless day, 

Sorrow in eternal rest.

1 What are these in bright array ? 

This innumerable throng. 
Round the altar night and day 

Hymning one triumphant song? 
Worthy is the Lamb once slain. 

Blessing, honor, glory, power. 
Wisdom, riches, to obtain ; 

New dominion every hour. 

2 These through fiery trials trod ; 

These from great affliction came ; 
Now before the throne of God, 

Sealed with his eternal name. 
Clad in raiment pure and white, 

Victor palms in every hand. 
Through their dear Redeemer's migh* 

More than conquerors they stand 

3 Hunger, thirst, disease, unknown. 

On immortal fruits they feed ; 
Them the Lamb amidst the throne 

Shall to living fountains lead ; 
Joy and gladness banish sighs ; 

Perfect love dispels all fear. 
And for ever from their eyes 

God shall wipe away the tear.

"Where storms arise and ocean rolls, 

And all is drear but heaven.

The heart no longer riven, 
And sees the tempest passing by. 
The evening shadows quickly lly. 

And all serene in heaven.

And joys supreme are given ; 
There rays divine disperse the gloom ; 
Beyond the dark and narrow tomb 

Appears the dawn of heaven.

Hasted through the former year, 
Many souls their race have run, 

Never more to meet us here ; 
Fixed in an eternal state, 

They have done with all below ; 
We a little longer wait, 

But how little none can know.

Speedily the mark to find. 
As the lightning from the skies 
Darts, and leaves no trace behind.

Swiftly thus our fleeting days 

Bear us down life's narrow stream; 

Upward, Lord ! our spirits raise ; 
All below is but a dream. 



Thanks for mercies past receive. 

Pardon of our sins renew ; 
Teach us hencpforth how to live 

With eternity in view ; 
Bless thy word to young and old. 

Fill us with a Saviour's love ; 
And when life's short tale is told, 

May we dwell with thee above.

1 Come, let us anew 
Our journey pursue. 
Roll round with the year, 

And never stand still till the Master appear; 
His adorable will 
Let us gladly fulfill, 
And our talents improve. 

By the patience of hope and the labor of love. 

2 Our life is a dream ; 
Our time, as a stream. 
Glides swiftly away, 

And the fugitive moment refuses to stay ; 



The arrow is flown, 
The moment is gone. 
The millennial year 
Rushes on to our view, and eternity 's here. 

3 Oh that each in the day 

Of his coming may say, 

"I have fought my way through, 

I have finished the work which thou gav'st m6 

Oh that each from his Lord [to do !" 

May receive the glad word, 

" Well and faithfully done ! 

Enter into my joy, and sit down on my throne I"

1 Great God ! we sing thy mighty hand, 
By which supported still we stand ; 
The opening year thy mercy shows ; 
That mercy crowns it till it close. 

2 By day, by night, at home, abroad, 
Still we are guarded by our God; 
By his incessant bounty fed, 

By his unerring counsel led. 

3 With grateful hearts the past we own ; 
The future, all to us unknown. 

We to thy guardian care commit. 
And peaceful leave before thy feet. 

4 In scenes exalted or depressed 

Be thou our joy and thou our rest ; 
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise. 
Adored, through all our changing days. 

5 When death shall close our earthly songs. 
And seal in silence mortal tongues, 

Onr helper, God, in whom we trust. 
In better worlds our souls shall boast. 

811 

1 My Helper, God ! I bless his name ; 
The same his power, his grace the same ; 
The tokens of his friendly care 

Open and crown and close the year. 

2 Amidst ten thousand snares I stand. 
Supported by his guardian hand ; 

366 



And see, when I survey his ways. 
Ten thousand monuments of praise. 

3 Thus far his arm hath led me on. 
Thus far I make his mercy known ; 
And while I tread this desert land. 
New mercies shall new songs demand. 

4 My grateful soul on Jordan's shore 
Shall raise one sacred pillar more ; 
Then bear in his bright courts above 
Inscriptions of immortal love. 



812 



1 Eternal Source of every joy ! 

Well may thy praise our lips employ. 

While in thy temple we appear 

Whose goodness crowns the circling year. 

2 The flow'ry spring at thy command 
Perfumes the air and paints the land ; 
The summer rays with vigor shine 
To raise the corn and cheer the vine. 

3 Thy hand in autumn richly pours 
Through all our coasts redundant stores ; 
And winters, softened by thy care. 

No more the face of horror wear. 

4 Seasons and months and weeks and days 
Demand successive songs of praise ; 
Still be the cheerful homage paid 

With opening light and evening shade.

1 With songs and honors sounding loud 

Address the Lord on high ; 
Over the heavens he spreads his cloud, 
And waters veil the sky. 

2 He sends his showers of blessing down 

To cheer the plains below ; 
He makes the grass the mountains crown, 
And corn in valleys grow. 

3 His steady counsels change the face 

Of the declining year ; 
He bids the sun cut short his race, 
And wintry days appear. 

4 His hoary frost, his fleecy snow, 

Descend and clothe the ground ; 
The liquid streams forbear to flow, 
In icv fetters bound.

1 Good is the Lord, the heavenly King, 

Who makes the earth his care, 
Visits the pastures every spring, 
And bids the grass appear. 

2 The clouds, like rivers raised on high, 

Pour out, at his command. 
Their watery blessings from the sky, 
To cheer the thirsty land. 

3 The softened ridges of the field 

Permit the corn to spring, 
The valleys rich provision yield. 
And cheerful lab'rers sing. 

4 The little hills on every side 

Rejoice at falling showers; 
The meadows, dressed in all their pride. 
Perfume the air with flowers. 



5 He sends his word and melts the snow. 

The fields no longer mourn ; 
He calls the warmer gales to blow. 
And bids the spring return. 

6 The changing wind, the flying cloud. 

Obey his mighty word ; 
With songs and honors sounding loud 
Praise ye the sovereign Lord. 
368 



5 The barren clods, refreshed with rain, 

Promise a joyful crop ; 
The parching grounds look green again. 
And raise the reaper's hope. 

6 The various months thy goodness crowns; 

How bounteous are thy ways ! 
The bleating flocks spread o'er the downs 
And shepherds shout thy praise.

The breath that first it gave ;

Hang everlasting things ! 
The eternal states of all the dead 
Upon life's feeble strings.

Attends on every breath ; 
And yet how unconcerned we go 
Upon the brink of death !

To walk this dangerous road ; 

And if our souls are hurried hence, 

May they be found with God.

The sower hid the grain, 
Thy goodness marked its secret birth,

Thou mad'st the summer sun to shine, 
The summer dew to fall.

Matured the swelling grain ; 
And now the harvest crowns thy love, 
And plenty fills the plain.

Still own in praise and prayer.

1 Lord of the harvest ! thee we hail, 
Thine ancient promise doth not fail ; 
The varying seasons haste their round. 
With goodness all our years are crowned ; 

Our thanks we pay, 
This holy day ; 
Oh, let our hearts in tune be found. 

2 If spring doth wake the song of mirth, 
If summer warms the fruitful earth. 
When winter sweeps the naked plain, 
Or autumn yields its ripened grain. 

We still do sing 
To thee our King ; 
Through all their changes thou dost reign. 

3 But chiefly when thy liberal hand 
Bestows new plenty o'er the land, 
When sounds of music fill the air, 
As homeward all their treasures bear, 



We too will raise 
Our hymn of praise. 
For we thy common bounties share. 

Lord of the harvest ! all is thine, 
The rains that fall, the suns that shine. 
The seed once hidden in the ground. 
The skill that makes our fruits abound 

New every year 

Thy gifts appear ; 
New praises from our lips shall sound. 

Immortal honor, endless fame. 
Attend the almighty Father's name ; 
Like honor to the incarnate Son, 
AVho for lost man redemption won ; 

And equal praise 

We thankful raise 
To thee, blest Spirit ! with therr one.

Come, ye thankful people, come. 
Raise the song of harvest home ; 
All is safely gathered in, 
Ere the winter storms begin ; 
God, our Maker, doth provide 
For our wants to be supplied ; 
Come to God's own temple, come ; 
Raise the song of harvest home. 

We ourselves are God's own field, 
Fruit unto his praise to yield ; 
Wheat and tares together sown, 
Unto joy or sorrow grown ; 
First the blade, and then the ear. 
Then the full corn shall appear; 
Lord of harvest ! grant that we 
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

3 For the Lord our God shall come, 
And shall take his harvest home ; 
From his field shall purge away 
All that doth ofi'end that day ; 
Give his angels charge at last 

In the fire the tares to cast, 
But the fruitful ears to store 
In his garner evermore. 

4 Even so, Lord ! quickly come 
To thy final harvest home ; 
Gather thou thy people in, 
Free from sorrow, free from sin 
There for ever purified 

In thy presence to abide ; 

Come with all thine angels, come, 

Raise the glorious harvest home.

And the voice of song and mirth

For the valley's golden yield. 
For the fruits of tree and field ;

That while heaven and earth endure 
Seed-time, harvest, cold and heat 
Shall their yearly round complete ;

Watch o'er field and furrow kept. 
Watch o'er all the buried grain, 
Soon to burst to life again.

Tares and wheat before the King, 
Jesus ! may we gathered be 

In the heavenly barn to thee.

Praise the Lamb ; the lost are found ; 
And the answering song shall be, 
Alleluia, praise to thee —

Lo ! the mighty work is done : 
Glory to the three in one.

How happy they who rest in thee '

Thy clouds drop wealth the world around ; 
Through thee the deserts laugk and sing 
And nature smiles and owns her King.

Oh, let thy love our spring-tide be.

Of every clime and coast, 
Oh, hear us for our native land — 
The land we love the most.

With peace our borders bless, 
AVith prosperous times our cities crown. 
Our fields with plenteousness.

Of k nowledge, truth and thee,

And let our hills and valleys shout 
The songs of liberty.

Smile on our Sabbath hours, 
And piety and virtue bless 
The home of us and ours.

Our country we commend ; 
Be thou her refuge and her trust. 
Her everlasting friend.

1 Lord! thou hast scourged our guilty land, 

Behold thy people mourn ; 
Shall vengeance ever guide thy hand. 
And mercy ne'er return ? 

2 Beneath the terrors of thine eye 

Earth's haughty towers decay ; 



Thy frowning mantle spreads the sky 
And mortals melt away. 

Our Zion trembles at the stroke, 
And dreads thy lifted hand ; 

Oh, heal the people thou hast broke, 
And save the sinking land.

1 When in our hour of utmost need 
We know not where to look for aid, 
When days and nights of anxious thought 
Nor help nor counsel yet have brought, 

2 Then this our comfort is alone. 
That we may meet before thy throne, 
And cry, O faithful God ! to thee 
For rescue from our misery ; 

3 To thee may raise our hearts and eyes, 
Repenting sore with bitter sighs. 
And seek thy pardon for our sin. 
And respite from our griefs within. 

4 For thou hast promised, graciously 
To hear all those who cry to thee 

ALFRETON. 



Through him whose name alone is great, 
Our Saviour and our advocate. 

5 And thus we come, O God ! to-day, 
And all our woes before thee lay, 
For tried, afflicted, lo ! we stand, 
Peril and foes on every hand. 

6 Ah ! hide not for our sins thy face ; 
Absolve us through thy boundless grace ; 
Be with us in our anguish still, 

Free us at last from every ill. 

7 That so with all our hearts may we 
Once more with joy give thanks to thee, 
And walk obedient to thy word, 

And now and ever praise the Lord.

1 Sovereign of all the worlds above ! 

Thy glory, with unclouded rays, 
Shines through the realms of light and lov< 
Inspiring angels with thy praise. 

2 Thy pow'r we own, thy grace adore; 

Thou deign'st to visit men below ; 
And in affliction's darkest hour 
The humble shall thv mercy know. 

3 These western States at thy command 

Rose from dependence and distress ; 
Prosperity now crowns the land. 
And millions join thy name to bless. 

1 Praise is thy due, eternal King ! 

We '11 speak the wonders of thy love ; 
With grateful hearts our tribute bring, 
And emulate the hosts above. 

5 Oh, be thou still our guardian God, 

Preserve these States from ev'ry foe. 
From party rage, from scenes of blood. 
From sin and every cause of woe. 

6 Here may the great Redeemer reign, 

Display his grace and sa^-ing power; 



Here liberty and truth maintain, 
Till empires fall to rise no more.

1 Salvation doth to God belong, 

His power and grace shall be our sonc 
From him alone all mercies flow. 
His arm alone subdues the foe. 

2 Then praise this God, who bows his ei 
Propitious to his people's prayer ; 
And though deliverance he may stay, 
Yet answers still in his own day. 

3 Oh, may this goodness lead our land 
Still saved by thine almighty hand. 
The tribute of its love to bring 

To thee, our Saviour and our King, 

4 Till every public temple raise 

A song of triumph to thy praise, 
And every peaceful private home 
To thee a temple shall become. 

5 Still be it our supreme delight 

To walk as in thy glorious sight. 

Still in thy precepts and thy fear 

Till life's last hour to persevere.

Thou hast mercy more abounding ;

Let that blood our guilt efface ; 

Save thy people from oppression. 

Save from spoil thy holy place.

Humbly at thy feet we bend ; 
Hear us, fasting, praying, mourning, 
Hear us, spare us, and defend.

May well thy love declare, 
From foes and fears at rest,

And its rich fruits be seen. 
May every tongue

And join to raise 
A grateful song. 



Earth, hear thy Maker's voice, 

Thy great Redeemer own ; 
Believe, obey, rejoice. 
And worship him alone. 
Cast down thy pride, 
Thy sin deplore,

To bless the marriage day I

And glad the bridegroom's heart, 
For he who tarried at their side 
Bade grief and ill depart

The water vessels knew. 
And plenteous was the mystic wine 
The wondering servants drew.

Come thou again to-day ! 
And bring a blessing from above 
That ne'er shall pass away.

As thou dost knit them. Lord ! in one, 
So bless them evermore.

1 Great God ! indulge my humble claim, 

Thou art my hope, my joy, my rest ; 
The glories that compose thy name 
Stand all engaged to make me blest. 

2 Thou great and good, thou just and wise ! 

Thou art my Father and my God ; 
'ind I am thine by sacred ties. 
Thy son, thy servant, bought with blood. 

3 With early feet I love t' appear 

Among thy saints, and seek thy face ; 
Oft have I seen thy glory there. 
And felt the power of sovereign grace. 

I '11 lift my hands, I '11 raise my voice. 
While I have breath to pray or praise ; 

This work shall make my heart rejoice. 
And spend the remnant of my days. 

845 

1 What various hindrances we meet 
In coming to a mercy-seat ! 
Yet who that knows the worth of prayer 
But wishes to be often there? 

Prayer makes the darkened cloud withdraw, 
Prayer climbs the ladder Jacob saw. 
Gives exercise to faith and love, 
Brings every blessing from above. 

3 Restraining prayer, we cease to fight ; 

Prayer makes the Christian's armor bright ; 
25 



And Satan trembles when he sees 
The weakest saint upon his knees. 

4 Have you no words? Ah ! think again ; 
AVords flow apace when you complain, 
And fill your fellow-creature's ear 
With the sad tale of all your care. 

5 Were half the breath thus vainly spent 
To Heaven in supplication sent. 

Your cheerful song would oftener be, 
" Hear what the Lord has done for me.'*

1 Where high the heavenly temple stands, 
The house of God not made with hands, 
A great High Priest our nature wears, 
The Guardian of mankind appears. 

2 Though now ascended up on high, 
He bends on earth a brother's eye ; 
Partaker of the human name, 

He knows the frailty of our frame. 

3 In every pang that rends the hea^t 
The Man of sorrows had a part ; 
He sympathizes with our grief, 
And to the sufferer sends relief. 

4 With boldness, therefore, at the throjie. 

Let us make all our sorrows known. 

And ask the aid of heavenly power 

To help us in the evil hour.

That calls me from a world of care. 

And bids me at my Father's throne 
Make all my wants and wishes known ;

My soul has often found relief, 
And oft escaped the tempter's snare. 
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer.

Thy wings shall my petition bear. 

To him whose truth and faithfulness 
Engage the waiting soul to bless ; 
And since he bids me seek his face, 
Believe his word and trust his grace 
I '11 cast on him my every care. 
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer. 

S Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, 
May I thy consolation share. 
Till from Mount Pisgah's lofty height 
I view my home and take my flight ; 
This robe of flesh I '11 drop, and rise. 
To seize the everlasting prize ; 



And shout, while passing through the air, 
Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer.

And make us kings and priests to Grnl ;

1 Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, 

Unuttered or expressed ; 
The motion of a hidden fire 
That trembles in the breast. 

2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh, 

The falling of a tear. 
The upward glancing of an eye 
When none but God is near. 

3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech 

That infant lips can try ; 
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach 
The Majesty on high. 

4 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice 

Returning from his ways, 
While angels in their songs rejoice. 
And say, " Behold, he prays." 

5 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, 

The Christian's native air, 
His watchword at the gates of death ; 
He enters heaven with prayer. 

852 

1 In all my vast concerns with thee 

In vain my soul would try 
To shun thy presence, Lord ! or flee 
The notice of thine eye. 

2 Thine all-surrounding sight surveys 

My rising and my rest. 
My public walks, my private ways, 
And secrets of my breast. 
388 



3 My thoughts lie open to the Lord 

Before they 're formed within 
And ere my lips pronounce the word 
He knows the sense I mean. 

4 Oh, wondrous knowledge, deep and liigh ! 

Where can a creature hide? 
Within thy circling arms I lie, 
Beset on every side. 

5 So let thy grace surround me still, 

And like a bulwark prove 
To guard my soul from every ill. 
Secured by sovereign love. 

853 

1 Far from the world, Lord ! I flee. 

From strife and tumult far, 
From scenes where Satan wages still 
His most successful war. 

2 Tlie calm retreat, the silent shade, 

Witli prayer and praise agree ; 
And seem, by thy sweet bounty, made 
For those who follow thee. 

3 There, if thy Spirit touch the soul. 

And grace her mean abode, 
Oh, with what peace and joy and love 
She then communes with God ! 

4 Author and Guardian of my life, 

Sweet Source of light divine. 
And all harmonious names in one, 
Blest Saviour ! thou art mine.

As that which calls me to thy feet, 
The hour of prayer ? 

2 Blest is the tranquil hour of morn,

When, on the wings of prayer upborne, 
The world I leave. 

3 Then is my strength by thee renewed ; 

Then are my sins by thee forgiven ; 



RETREAT 



Then dost thou cheer my solitude 
With hopes of heaven. 

No words can tell what sweet relief 

Here for my every want I find. 
What strength for warfare, balm for grief, 
What peace of mind.

No privilege so dear shall be, 
As thus my inmost soul to pour 
In prayer to thee.

The oil of gladness on our heads — 
A place than all besides more sweet ; 
It is the blood-bought mercy-seat.

Where friend holds fellowship with friend;

1 With songs of sacred joy 

Extol his glorious name 
Who reared the spacious earth, 

And raised our ruined frame. 
He built the church who spread the sky ; 
Sing and exalt his honors high. 

2 See the foundation laid 

By power and love divine ; 
Jesus, his first-born Son, 

How bright his glories shine ! 
Low he descends, in dust he lies. 
That from his tomb a church might rise. 

S But he for ever lives. 

Nor for himself alone ; 
Each saint new life derives 

From him, the living Stone, 
His influence spreads through every soul, 
And in one house unites the whole. 

4 To him with joy we move ; 

In him cemented stand ; 
The living temple grows. 

And owns the Founder's hand. 
That structure, Lord ! still higher raise, 
Louder to sound its Builder's praise. 



859 



1 THOU that hearest prayer 

Attend our humble cry, 
And let thy servants share 

Thy blessings from on high ; 
We plead the promise of thy word ; 
Grant us thy Holy Spirit, Lord ! 

2 If earthly parents hear 

Their children when they cry, 
If they, with love sincere, 

Their varied wants supply, 
Much more wilt thou thy love display, 
And answer when thy children pray. 

3 Our heavenly Father, thou ; 

We, children of thy grace ; 
Oh, let thy Spirit now 

Descend, and fill the place ; 
So shall we feel the heavenly flame, 
And all unite to praise thy name. 

4 Oh, send thy Spirit down 

On all the nations, Lord ! 
With great success to crown 

The preaching of thy word, 

Till heathen lands shall own thy sway, 

And cast their idol-gods away.

1 Just are thy ways and true thy word, 

Great Rock of my secure abode ! 
Who is a God beside the Lord? 
Or where 's a refuge like our God ? 

2 'T is he that girds me with his might, 

Gives me his holy sword to wield, 
And while with sin and hell I fight 
Spreads his salvation for my shield. 

3 He lives, and blessed be my Rock, 

The God of my salvation lives ; 
The dark designs of hell are broke ; 
Sweet is the peace my Father gives. 

861 

1 Where two or three, with sweet accord. 
Obedient to their sovereign Lord, 
Meet to recount his acts of grace, 

And offer solemn prayer and praise, 

2 There will the gracious Saviour be, 
To bless the little company ; 
There, to unveil his smiling face, 
And bid his glories fill the place 

3 We meet at thy command, Lord I 
Relying on thy faithful word ; 
Now send the Spirit from above, 

And fill our hearts with heavenly love. 



862 



When, gracious Lord ! when shall it be 
Tliat I shall find my all in thee, 
The fullness of thy promise prove, 
The seal of thine eternal love ? 
3^2 



2 Ah ! wherefore did I ever doubt ? 
Thou wilt in no wise cast me out, 
A helpless soul that comes to thee 
With only sin and misery. 

3 Lord ! I am blind — be thou my sight , 
Lord ! I am weak — be thou my might ; 
A helper of the helpless be, 

And let me find my all in thee. 

863 

1 God calling yet ! shall I not hear ? 
Earth's pleasures shall I still hold dear? 
Shall life's swift passing years all flv, 
And still my soul in slumbers lie ? 

2 God calling yet ! shall I not rise? 
Can I his loving voice despise 
And basely his kind care repay ? 
He calls me still ; can I delay ? 

3 God calling yet! and shall he knock, 
And I my heart the closer lock ? 

He still is waiting to receive, 
And shall I dare his Spirit grieve ? 

4 God calling yet ! and shall I give 
No heed, but still in bondage live? 
I wait, but he does not forsake ; 
He calls me still ; my heart, awake 1 

5 God calling yet! t cannot stay ; 
My heart I yield without delay ; 

Vain world, farewell ; from thee I part ; 
The voice of God hath reached ray heart.

1 Dear Father ! to thy mercy-seat 

My soul for shelter flies ; 
'T is here I find a safe retreat 
When storms and tempests rise. 

2 My cheerful hope can never die 

If thou, my God ! art near ; 
Thy grace can raise my comforts high, 
And banish every fear. 

3 My great Protector and my Lord ! 

Thy constant aid impart ; 
Oh, let thy kind, thy gracious word 
Sustain my trembling heart. 

4 Oh, never let my soul remove 

From this divine retreat ; 
Still let me trust thy power and love. 
And dwell beneath thy feet. 



865 



1 Now shall my solemn vows be paid 

To that almighty power 
Who heard the long requests I made 
In my distressful hour. 

2 My lips and cheerful heart preparp 

To make his mercies known ; 
Come, ye wno fear my God, and hear 
The wonders he has done. 

3 When on my head huge sorrows fell, 

I sought his heavenly aid ; 



He saved my sinking soul from hell 
And death's eternal shade. 

4 If sin lay covered in my heart 

While prayer employed my tongue, 
The Lord had shown me no regard. 
Nor I his praises sung. 

5 But God — his name be ever blessed — 

Has set my spirit free, 
Nor turned from him my poor request, 
Nor turned his heart from me. 

866 

1 Grant me within thy courts a place, 

Among thy saints a seat. 

For ever to behold thy face, 

And worship at thy feet ; 

2 In thy pavilion to abide 

When storms of trouble blow, 
And in thy tabernacle hide. 
Secure from every foe 

3 Then leave me not when griefs assail 

And earthly comforts flee ; 
When father, mother, kindred^ fail, 
My God ! remember me. 

4 Wait on the Lord, with courage wait * 

My soul, disdain to fear; 
The righteous Judge is at the gate, 
And thy redemption near.

1 He that hath made his refuge God 
Shall find a most secure abode, 
Shall walk all day beneath his shade, 
And there at night shall rest his head. 

2 Then will I say, " My God ! thy power 
Shall be my fortress and my tower ; 

I, who am formed of feeble dust, 
Make thine almighty arm my trust." 

3 Thrice happy man ! thy Maker's care 
Shall keep thee from the fowler's snare 
Satan, the fowler, who betrays 
Unguarded souls a thousand ways. 

4 If burning beams of noon conspire 
To dart a pestilential fire, 

God is thy life ; his wings are spread 
To shield thee with a healthful shade. 

5 If vapors, with malignant breath. 

Rise thick, and scatter midnight-death, 

Israel is safe ; the poisoned air 

Grows pure if Israel's God be there.

1 With all my powers of heart and tongue 
I '11 praise my Maker in my song ; 
Angels shall hear the notes I raise. 
Approve the song and join the praise. 

2 I '11 sing thy truth and mercy. Lord I 
I '11 sing the wonders of thy word ; 
Not all the works and names below 
So much thy power and glory show. 

3 To God I cried when troubles rose. 
He heard me and subdued my foes ; 
He did my rising fears control. 

And strength difl"used through all my soul 

4 Amidst a thousand snares I stand, 
Upheld and guarded by thy hand ; 
Thy words my fainting soul revive, 
And keep mv dying faith alive. 



5 Grace will complete what grace oegins, 
To save from sorrows and from sins ; 
The work that wisdom undertakes 
Eternal mercy ne'er forsakes.

Possess thine humble throne ; 
Bid every rival hence depart, 
And claim me for thine own. 



2 The world and Satan I forsake. 
To thee I all resign ; 
My longing heart, Jesus ! take. 
And fill with love divine. 



3 Oh, may I never turn aside. 
Nor from thy bosom flee ; 
Let nothing here my heart divide ; 
I give it all to thee.

While thy whole law is my delight. 
And I obey thy will. 



871 



1 Salvation ! oh, the joyful sound ; 
'T is pleasure to our ears ; 
A sovereign balm for every wound, 
A cordial for our fears. 



2 Buried in sorrow and in sin. 
At hell's dark door we lay ; 
But we arise, by grace divine, 
To see a heavenly day. 



3 Salvation ! let the echo fly 

The spacious earth around, 

While all the armies of the sky 

Conspire to raise the sound,

1 While life prolongs its precious light 

Mercy is found and peace is given ; 
But soon, ah ! soon, approaching night 
Shall blot out every hope of heaven. 

2 While God invites, how blest the day ! 

How sweet the gospel's charming sound ! 
Come, sinners, haste, oh, haste away, 
While yet a pardoning God is found. 

3 Soon, borne on time's most rapid wing, 

Shall death command you to the grave, 
Before his bar your spirits bring. 
And none be found to hear or save. 

4 In that lone land of deep despair 

No Sabbath's heavenly light shall rise. 
No God regard your bitter prayer, 
Nor Saviour call you to the skies. 

5 Now God invites, how blest the day ! 

How sweet the gospel's charming sound ! 
Come, sinners, haste, oh, haste away, 
While yet a pardoning God is found. 

873 

1 Broad is the road that leads to death, 

And thousands walk together there, 
But wisdom shows a narrow path, 
W ith here and there a traveler. 

2 " Deny thyself and take thy cross" 

Is the Redeemer's great command ; 
Nature must count her gold but dross 
If she would gain this heavenly land. 
396 



3 The fearful soul that tires and faints, 

And walks the ways of God no more, 
Is but esteemed almost a saint, 
And makes his own destruction sure. 

4 Lord ! let not all my hopes be vain ; 

Create my heart entirely new. 
Which hypocrites could ne'er attain. 
Which false apostates never knew. 

874 

1 Say, sinner, hath a voice within 

Oft whispered to thy secret soul, 
Urged thee to leave the ways of sin 
And yield thy heart to God's control ? 

2 Sinner ! it was a heavenly voice, 

It was the Spirit's gracious call ; 
It bade thee make the better choice, 
And haste to seek in Christ thine all. 

3 Spurn not the call to life and light ; 

Regard in time the warning kind 
That call thou mayst not always slight 
And yet the gate of mercy find. 

4 God's spirit will not always strive 

With hardened, self-destroying man ; 
Ye who persist his love to grieve 
May never hear his voice again. 

5 Sinner! perhaps this very day 

Thy last accepted time may be ; 
Oh, shouldst thou grieve him now away. 
Then hope may never beam on thee.

1 Exalt the Lord our God, 

And worship at his feet ; 
His nature is all holiness, 
And mercy is his seat. 

2 When Israel was his church. 

When Aaron was his priest. 
When Moses cried, when Samuel prayed, 
He gave his people rest. 

3 Oft he forgave their sins. 

Nor would destroy their race ; 
And oft he made his justice known 
When they abused his grace. 

4 Exalt the Lord our God, 

Whose grace is still the same ; 
Still he 's a God of holiness, 
And jealous for his name.

To-morrow it may be too late ; 
Then why sliould you delay ? 

3 Now is th' accepted time,

And every f*romise in his word 
Declares there yet is room. 

4 Lord ! draw reluctant souls. 
And melt them by thy love ;

Let thy bright beams arise ; 
Dispel the sorrow from our minds. 
The darkness from our eyes.

And to our wondering view reveal 
The mercies of our God. 

3 Revive our drooping faith, 

Our doubts and fears remove. 
And kindle in our breasts the flame 
Of never-dying love. 

4 'T is thine to cleanse the heart. 

To sanctify the soul, 
To pour fresh life in every part. 
And new-create the whole.

Then shall we know and praise and lovfi

Unless thou return again ; 
Lord ! revive us, 
All our help must come from thee. 

2 Keep no longer at a distance, 
Shine upon us from on high, 
Lest for want of thine assistance 
Every plant should droop and die. 



S Dearest Saviour! hasten hither. 

Thou canst make them bloom again ; 
Oh, permit them not to wither.

Thou must light the flame, or never 
Can my love be warmed to praise. 

3 Praise, my soul, the God that sought thee, 

Wretched wanderer, far astray ; 
Found thee lost and kindly brought thee 
From the paths of death away ; 

4 Praise, with love's devoutest feeling. 

Him who saw thy guilt-born fear, 
And, the light of hope revealing, 
Bade the blood-stained cross appear. 

5 Lord ! this bosom's ardent feeling 

Vainly would my lips express ; 
Low before thy footstool kneeling, 
Deign thy suppliant's prayer to bless. 

6 Let thy grace, my soul's chief treasure, 

Love's pure flame within me raise , 
And since words can never measure, 
Let my life show forth thy praise.

1 God ! beneath thy guiding hand 

Our exiled fathers crossed the sea ; 
And when they trod the wintry strand, 
With prayer and psalm they worshiped 
thee. 

2 Thou heardst, well pleased, the song, the 

prayer ; 
Thy blessing came, and still its power 
Shall onward through all ages bear 
The memory of that holy hour. 

3 Laws, freedom, truth and faith in God 

Came with those exiles o'er the waves ; 
And where their pilgrim feet have trod 
The God they trusted guards their graves. 

4 And here thy name, God of love ! 

Their children's children shall adore, 
Till these eternal hills remove. 

And spring adorns the earth no more.

1 Bejiold, the heathen waits to know 
The joy the gospel will bestow, 
The exiled captive to receive 

The freedom Jesus has to give. 

2 Come, let us, with a grateful heart. 
In this blest labor share a part ; 

Our prayers and offerings gladly bring 

To aid the triumphs of our King. 
26 



3 Our hearts exult in songs of praise 
That we have seen these latter days. 
When our Redeemer shall be known 
Where Satan long hath held his throne. 

4 Where'er his hand hath spread the skies, 
Sweet incense to his name shall rise, 
And slave and freeman, Greek and Jew, 
By sovereign grace be formed anew. 

886 

1 Lord of the harvest ! bend thine ear 
For Zion's heritage appear ; 

Oh, send forth laborers filled with zeal 
Swift to obey their Master's will. 

2 Our lifted eyes, Lord ! behold 

The ripening harvest tinged with gold ; 
Wide fields are opening to our view ; 
The work is great, the laborers few. 

3 Under the guidance of thy hand 
May Zion's sons to every land 
Go forth, to bless the dying race, 
As heralds of redeeming grace. 

4 Bid all their hearts with ardor glow 

The Saviour's dying love to show. 

And spread the gospel's joyful sound 

Far as the race of man is found.

Th' appointed duties of the day ; 
With ready mind and active will

Thy threatenings just, thy promise sure,

May guile depart and discord cease, 
And all within be joy and peace.

New perils past, new sins forgiven. 

New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven 

3 If, on our daily course, our mind 
Be set to hallow all we find. 

New treasures still, of countless price, 
God will provide for sacrifice. 

4 The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we need to ask. 
Room to deny ourselves, a road 

To bring us daily nearer God. 

5 Only, Lord ! in thy dear love, 
Fit us for perfect rest above. 
And help us this and every day 
To live more nearly as we pray. 



MORNING, 



MORNING HYMN. 

4 



L.M. 




1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun 
Thy daily stage of duty run ; 
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

2 "Wake and lift up thyself, my heart, 
And with the angels bear thy part, 
AYho, all night long, unwearied sing 
High praise to thee, eternal King ! 

PETERBOROUGH. 




3 All praise to thee who safe hast kept, 
And hast refreshed me while I slept; 
Grant, Lord ! when I from death shall wake, 
I may of endless life partake. 

4 Lord! I my vows to thee renew; 
Scatter my sins as morning dew ; 

Guard my first springs of thought and will, 
And with thyself my spirit fill.

1 Once more, my soul, the rising day 

Salutes thy waking eyes ; 
Once more, my voice, thy tribute pay 
To him who^ rules the skies. 

2 Night unto night his name repeats. 

The day renews the sound. 
Wide as the heaven on which he sits 
To turn the seasons round. 

3 'T is he supports my mortal frame. 

My tongue shall speak his praise ; 



My sins would rouse his wrath to flame, 
And yet his wrath delays. 

A thousand wretched souls are fled 

Since the last setting sun, 
And yet he lengthens out my thready 

And yet my moments run. 

Great God let all my hours be thine 

Whilst I enjoy the light ; 
Then shall my sun in smiles decline, 

And bring a peaceful right.

4 When sleep, death's image, o'er me spread, 

And I unconscious lay. 
Thy watchful care was round my bed 
To guard my feeble clay. 

5 Oh, let the same almighty care 

My waking hours attend ; 
From every danger, every snare, 
My helpless steps defend. 

6 Smile on my minutes as they roll, 

And guide my future days. 
And let thy goodness fill my soul 
With gratitude and praise. 



892 

1 Lord of my life ! oh, may thy praise 

Employ my noblest powers. 
Whose goodness lengthens out my days 
And fills the circling hours. 

2 Preserved by thine almighty arm, 

I passed the shades of night 
Secure and safe from every harm, 
And see returning light* 

3 While many spent the night in sighs 

And restless pains and woes, 
In gentle sleep I closed my eyes, 
In undisturbed repose.

Beneath God's guardian care ;

This feeble spirit pants beneath

Tinged with thy blood, it shall ascend

1 Whev. streaming from the eastern skies, 
The morning light salutes mine eyes. 

Sun of righteousness divine : 
On me with beams of mercy shine ; 
Chase the dark clouds of guilt away, 
And turn my darkness into day. 

2 And when to heaven's all-glorious King 
My morning sacrifice I bring, 

And, mourning o"er my guilt and shame. 

YOAKiEY. 



Ask mercy in my Saviour's name, 
Then, Jesus I cleanse me with thy blood. 
And be my Advocate with God. ' 

And at my life's last setting sun, 
My conflicts o'er, my labors done, 
Jesus ! thy heav'nly radiance shed, 
To cheer and bless my d\'lng bed. 
And from death's gloom 'my spirit raise 
To see thy face and sing thy praise.

God. my gracious God ! to thee 
My morning prayers shall offered be. 

For thee my thirsty soul does pant ; 
My fainting fl'esh implores thy grace. 
As in a dr\- and barren place. 

Where I refreshing waters want. 

Oh. to my longing eyes, once more 
That view of glorious power restore 

Which thy majestic house displays ; 
Because to me thy wondrous love 
Than life it4?elf does dearer prove, 

My lips shall always speak thy praise. 



My life, while I that life enjoy, 
In blessing God I will employ. 

With lifted hands adore his name ; 
As. with its choicest food supplied, 
My soul shall be full satisfied. 

While I with joy his praise proclaim. 

When down I lie sweet sleep to find^ 
Thou. Lord .' an present to my mind, 

And when I wake in dead of night . 
Because thou still dost succor bring. 
Beneath the shadow of thy wing 

I rest with safety and delight

Unaccompanied by thee ; 
Joyless is the day's return 
Till thy mercy's beams I see,

Till they inward light impart, 
Glad my eyes and warm my heart.

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;

Shining to the perfect day.

Let me in thy light rejoice ;

It is not night if thou be near ; 

Oh may no earth-born cloud arise 
To hide thee from thy servant's eyes. 

2 When soft the dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyelids gently steep, 

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 
For esrer on my Saviour's breast! 

HEBRON. 



3 Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without thee I cannot live ; 
Abide with me when night is nigh. 
For without thee I dare not die. 

4 Come near to bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take, 
Till in the ocean of thy love 

We lose ourselves in heaven above.

1 Thus far the Lord hath led me on. 

Thus far his power prolongs my days ; 
And every evening should make known 
Some fresh memorials of his grace. 

2 Much of my time has run to waste. 

And I, perhaps, am near my home ; 
But he forgives my follies past, 
He gives me strength for days to come.

1 Great God ! to thee my evening song 

With humble gratitude I raise : 
Oh, let thy mercy tune my tongue. 
And fill my heart with lively praise. 

2 My days, unclouded as they pass, 

And every gentle, rolling hour, 
Are monuments of wondrous grace. 
And witness to thy love and power. 

3 And yet this thoughtless, wretched heart, 

Too oft regardless of thy love, 
408 



Ungrateful can from thee depart, 
And, fond of trifles, vainly rove. 

4 Seal my forgiveness in the blood 

Of Jesus ; his dear name alone 
I plead for pardon, gracious God ! 
And kind acceptance at thy throne. 

5 Let this blest hope mine eyelids close, 

With sleep refresh my feeble frame ; 
Safe in thy care may I repose, 
And wake with praises to thy name.

1 All praise to thee, my God ! this night, 
For all the blessings of the light ; 
Keep me, oh keep me, King of kings ! 
Beneath thine own almighty wings. 

2 Forgive me, Lord ! for thy dear Son, 
The ill that I this day have done, 
That with the world, myself and thee 
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 

3 Teach me to live that I may dread 
The grave as little as my bed. 

To die that this vile body may 
Rise glorious at the awful day. 

ST. IGNATIUS. 



4 Oh, may my soul on thee repose, 

And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close- 
Sleep that shall me more vigorous make 
To serve my God when I awake. 

5 When in the night I sleepless lie, 

My soul with heavenly thoughts supply ; 
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest, 
No power of darkness me molest. 

6 Oh, when shall I in endless day 
For ever chase dark sleep away. 
And praise with the angelic choir 
Incessant sing, and never tire ?

The sick, Lord I around thee lay ; 
Oh, in what divers pains they met! 
Oh, witli what joy they went away ! 

2 Once more 't is eventide, and we. 

Oppressed with various ills, draw near ; 
What if thy form we cannot see ? 
We know and feel that thou art here. 

3 Saviour Christ I our woes dispel, 

For some are sick and some are sad. 
And some have never loved thee well, 
And some have lost the love they had ; 



DUBim. 



4 And some have found the world is vain, 

Yet from the world they break not free, 
And some have friends who give them pain. 
Yet have not sought a friend in thee. 

5 Saviour Christ ! thou too art Man ; 

Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried ; 
Thy kind but searching glance can scan 
The very wounds that shame would hide. 

6 Thy touch has still its ancient power ; 

No word from thee can fruitless fall ; 
Hear in this solemn evening hour, 
And in thy mercy heal us all.

And every hour thy arrace prepaie 
My soul for joys aDove. 

3 And when on earth I close mine eyes, 
To sleep in death's embrace. 
Let me to heaven and glory rise, 
To see thy smiling face.

Thy word into our minds instill, 
And make our lukewarm hearts to glow 

With lowly love and fervent will ; 
Thro' life's long day and death's dark night, 
gentle Jesus 1 be our Light. 

2 The day is gone, its hours have run, 

And thou hast taken count of all — 
The scanty triumphs grace hath won. 

The broken vow, the frequent fall ; 
Thro' life'? long day and death's dark night 
O gentle Jesus ! be our Light. 

i Grant us, dear Lord ! from evil ways 
True absolution and release, 
And bless us more than in past days 

With purity and inward peace ; 
Thro' life's long day and death's dark night, 
gentle Jesus ! be our Light. 



4 Do more than pardon, give us joy, 

Sweet fear and sober liberty. 
And simple hearts without alloy 

That only long to be like thee ; 
Thro' life's long day and death's dark night, 
gentle Jesus ! be our Light. 

5 Labor is sweet, for thou hast toiled. 

And care is light, for thou hast cared , 
Ah ! never let our works be soiled 

With strife, or by deceit ensnared ; 
Thro' Hfe's long day and death's dark nigljt 
O gentle Jesus ! be our Light. 

6 For all we love, the poor, the sad, 

The sinful, unto thee we call ; 
Oh, let thy mercy make us glad ; 

Thou art our Jesus and our All ; 
Thro' life's long day and death's daik night.

1 Dread Sovereign ! let my evening song 

Like holy incense rise ; 
Assist the offerings of my tongue 
To reach the lofty skies. 

2 Through all the dangers of the day 

Thy hand was still my guard, 
And still to drive my wants away 
Thy mercy stood prepared. 

3 Perpetual blessings from above 

Encompass me around ; 
But oh how few returns of love 
Hath my Creator found ! 

4 What have I done for him who died 

To save my wretched soul ? 
How are my follies multiplied, 
Fast as the minutes roll ! 

5 Lord ! with this guilty heart of mine 

To thy dear cross I flee, 
And to thy grace my soul resign, 
To be renewed by thee. 

908 

1 Lord ! thou wilt hear me when I pray ; 

I am for ever thine ; 
1 fear before thee all the day, 
Nor would I dare to sin. 

2 A nd while I rest my weary head, 

From cares and business free, 
412 



'T is sweet conversing on my bed 
With my own heart and thee. 

3 I pay this evening sacrifice ; 

And when my work is done. 
Great God ! my faith, my hope, relies 
Upon thy grace alone. 

4 Thus, with my thoughts composed to peace, 

I '11 give mine eyes to sleep ; 
Thy hand in safety keeps my days. 
And will my slumbers keep. 

909 

1 Now from the altar of our hearts 

Let flames of love arise ; 
Assist us, Lord ! to offer up 
Our evening sacrifice. 

2 Minutes and mercies multiplied 

Have made up all this day ; 
Minutes came quick, but mercies were 
More fleet, more free, than they. 

3 New time, new favors and new joys 

Do a new song require ; 
Till we shall praise thee as we would, 
Accept our hearts' desire. 

4 Lord of our time ! whose hand hath set 

New time upon our score, 
Thee may we praise for all our time. 
When time shall be no more.

Begone, disturbing care ; 
And look, my soul, from earth, away

Before his throne of grace ! 
While to the contrite spirit's sense 
He shows his smiling face. 

3 How sweet, through long-remembered years, 

His mercies to recall, 
And, pressed with wants and griefs and fears, 
To trust his love for all !

Beyond this fading sky, 
And hear him call his children up 
To his fair home on high !

1 I LOVE to steal a while away 

From every cumbering care, 
And spend the hours of setting day 
In humble, grateful prayer. 

2 I love, in solitude, to shed 

The penitential tear, 
And all his promises to plead 
Where none but God is near. 

3 I love to think on mercies past 

And future good implore. 
And all my cares and sorrows cast 
On him whom I adore. 

4 I love by faith to take a view 

Of brighter scenes in heaven ; 
The prospect doth my strength renew 
While here by tempests driven, 

5 Thus, when life's toilsome day is o'er. 

May its departing ray 

Be calm as this impressive hour, 

And lead to endless day.

The evening shades appear ; 
Oh, may I ever keep in mind 
The night of death draws near.

Upon my bed to rest ; 
So death will soon remove me hence, 
And leave my soul undressed.

Secure from all my fears ;

Till morning light appears.

The bosom of thv love.

Oh, make thy servants truly wise, 
That they may live to-day.

Oh, be it still pursued, 
Lest, slighted once, the season fair 
Should never be renewed.

Swift as the moj-ning light. 
Lest life's young golden beam should die 
In sudden, endless night.

I Fading, still fading, the last beam is shining, 
Father in heaven ! the day is declining, 
Safety and innocence fly with the light, 
Temptation and danger walk forth with the 

night ; 
From the fall of the shade till the morning 

bells chime 
Shield me from danger, save me from crime, 
Father, have mercy. Father, have mercy, 
Father, have mercy, through Jesus Christ 

our Ix)rd. 



2 Father in heaven I oh, hear when we call- 
Hear for Christ's sake, who is Saviour of all. 
Feeble and fainting, we trust in Ihy might. 
In doubting and darkness thy lv)ve be oui 

light ; 
Let us sleep on thy breast while the night 

taper burns, 
Wake in thy arms when morning returns- 
Father, have mercy. Father, have mercy, 
Father, have mercy, through Jesus Christ 

our Lord.

1 Lord of my life ! whose tender care 

Hath led me on till now, 
Here lowly at the hour of prayer 

Before thy throne I bow ; 
I bless thy gracious hand, and pray 
Forgiveness for anotlier day. 

2 Oh, may I daily, hourly, strive 

In heavenly grace to grow ; 
To thee and to thy glory live, 
Dead to all else below, 

VESPERS. 



Tread in the path my Saviour trod, 
Though thorny, yet the path to God. 



With prayer my humble praise I bring 

For mercies day by day ; 
Lord ! teach my heart thy love to sing, 

Lord ! teach me how to pray ; 
All that I have, I am, to thee 
I offer, through eternity.

1 Softly now the light of day 

Fades upon my sight away ; 
Free from care, from labor free, 
Lord ! I would commune with thee ; 

2 Thou whose all pervading eye 

Naught escapes without, within, 
Pardon each infirmity. 
Open fault and secret sin. 



KOZELUCH. 



3 Thou who, sinless, yet hast known 

All of man's infirmity ! 
Then from thine eternal throne, 
Jesus ! look with pitying eye ; 

4 Soon for me the light of day 

Shall for ever pass away ; 
Then, from sin and sorrow free, 
Take me, Lord ! to dwell with thee. 




1 Softly fades the twilight ray 
Of the holy Sabbath day. 
Gently as life's setting sun 
When the Christian's course is run 

2 Night her solemn mantle spreads 
O'er the earth as daylight fades ; 
All things tell of calm repose 

At the holy Sabbath's close. 

3 Peace is on the world abroad ; 
'Tis the holy peace of God — 

27 



Symbol of the peace ^nthin 
When the spirit rests from sin. 

4 Still the Spirit lingers near 
Where the evening worshiper 
Seeks communion with the skies, 
Pressing on Ward to the prize. 

5 Saviour ! may our Sabbaths be 
Days of peace and joy in thee. 
Till in heaven our souls repose, 
Where the Sabbath ne'er shall close.

1 Inspirer and Hearer of prayer, 

Thou Shepherd and Guardian of thine! 
My all to thy covenant care 
I sleeping and waking resign. 

2 If thou art my shield and my sun, 

The night is no darkness to me ; 
And fast as my moments roll on, 
They bring me but nearer to thee. 

3 Thy ministering spirits descend 

To watch while thy saints are asleep ; 
By day and by night they attend, 
The heirs of salvation to keep ; 

PASCAL 



4 Bright seraphs, despatched from the throne, 

Repair to their stations assigned ; 
And angels elect are sent down 
To guard the redeemed of mankind. 

5 Thy worship no interval knows ; 

Their fervor is still on the wing ; 
And while they protect my repose 
They chant to the praise of my Kinsr. 

6 I, too, at the season ordained. 

Their chorus for ever shall join. 
And love and adore without end 
Their faithful Creator, and mine.

1 Now from labor and from care 

Evening shades have set me free ; 
Tn the work of praise and prayer, 

Lord ! I would converse with thee 
Oh, behold me from above, 
Fill me with a Saviour's love. 

2 Sin and sorrow, guilt and woe, 

Wither all my earthly joys ; 
Naught can charm me here below 
418 



But my Saviour's melting voice ; 
Lord ! forgive ; thy grace restore ; 
Make me thine for evermore. 

3 For the blessings of this day. 
For the mercies of this hour, 
For the gospel's cheering ray. 

For the Spirit's quickening power. 
Grateful notes to thee I raise : 
Oh, accept my song of praise

1 This night, Lord ! we bless thee 

For thy protecting care, 
And ere we rest address thee 

In lowly, fervent prayer ; 
From evil and temptation 

Defend us through the night, 
And round our habitation 

Be thou a wall of light. 

2 On thee our whole reliance 

From day to day we cast. 
To thee, with firm affiance, 
Woul 1 cleave from first to last : 



To thee, through Jesus' merit, 
For needful grace we come, 

And trust that thy good Spirit 
Will guide us safely home. 

3 What may be on the morrow 
Our foresight cannot see ; 
But be it joy or sorrow. 

We know it comes from thee ; 
And nothing can take from us, 

Where'er our steps may move, 
The staff of thy sure promise, 
The shield of thy true love.

1 Abide with me I Fast falls the eventide ; 
The darkness deepens ; Lord ! with me abide ; 
When other helpers fail and comforts flee, 
Help of the helpless I oh abide with me. 

2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day ; 
Earth's joys grow dim ; its glories pass away ; 
Change and decay in all around I see ; 

thou who changest not ! abide with me. 

3 Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word ; 
But as thou dwell'st with thy disciples, Lord ! 
Familiar, condescending, patient, free. 
Come, not to sojourn, but abide, with me. 

4 Come not in terrors, as the King of kings. 
But kind and good, with healing in thy wings; 
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea ; 
Come, Friend of sinners ! thus abide with me. 

5 Thou on my head in early youth didst smile ; 
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile, 
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left thee ; 

On to the close, Lord ! abide with me. 

6 I need thy presence every passing hour ; 

What but thy grace can foil the tempter's power? 
Who like thyself my guide and stay can be? 
Through cloud and sunshine, oh abide with me ! 

7 I fear no foe, with thee at hand to bless ; 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness ; 
Where is death's sting? wliere, grave, thy victory ? 

1 triumph still, if thou abide with me. 

8 Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes. 

Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies ; 
Heaven's morning breaks and earth's vain shadows flee; 
In life, in death, O Lord ! abide with me.

All thanks, Lord ! to thee ; 
We pray thee now that sinless 

The hours of dark may be ; 
Jesus 1 keep us in thy sight, 
And save us through the coming night. 

2 The joys of day are over ; 

We lift our hearts to thee ; 
And ask thee that offenceless 

The hours of dark may be ; 
Jesus ! make their darkness light, 
And save us through the coming night. 

NIGHTSHADE [Arabia). 



3 The toils of day are over ; 

We raise our hymn to thee ; 
And ask that free from peril 

The hours of dark may be ; 
Jesus ! keep us in thy sight, 
And guard us through the coming night 

4 Be thou our souls' preserver, 

God ! for thou dost know 
How many are the perils 

Through which we have to go ; 
loving Jesus ! hear our call, 
And guard and save us from them all.

Pilgrims here on earth, and strangers 

Dwelling in the midst of foes,

Rest with thee in heaven at bwit.

Angel-guards from thee surround us ;

Darkness cannot hide from thee ; 
Thou art he who, never weary,

And our couch become our tomb. 
May the morn in heaven awake us, 
Clad in light and deathless bloom.

And 'neath his shadow here to rest we yield

Till morning Cometh, watch, Father! o'er us;

Thine angels send us.

Keep us in life ; forgive our sins ; deliver 
Us now and ever.

High throned, o'er all thine eye of mercy 

casting,

Fall from the dark'ning sky, 
Upon the fragrance of the flow'rs 
The dews of ev'ning lie ;

We kneel at close of day ; 
Look on thy children from on high, 
And hear us while we pray.

Oh, do not thou despise, 
But let the incense of our prayers 

Before thy mercy rise ; 
The brightness of the coming night 

Upon the darkness rolls ; 
With hopes of future glory chase 

The shadows from our souls.

So fade within the heart 
The hopes in earthly love and joy 

That one by one depart ; 
Slowly the bright stars, one by one. 

Within the heavens shine ; 
Give us, Lord ! fresh hopes in heaven, 

And trust in things divine. 

♦ Let peace, Lord ! thy peace, O God ! 
Upon our souls descend. 
From midnight fears and perils thou 

Our trembling hearts defend ; 
Give us a respite from our toil, 
Calm and subdue our woes ; 
Through the long day we suffer. Lord !

1 FAITH ! thou workest miracles 

Upon the hearts of men, 
Choosing thy home in those same hearts, 
AVe know not how or when. 

2 O Gift of gifts ! Grace of faith ! 

My God ! how can it be 
That thou, who hast discerning love, 
Shouldst give that gift to me? 

3 There was a place, there was a time. 

Whether by night or day, 
Thy spirit came and left that gift, 
And went upon his way. 

4 How many hearts thou mightst have had 

More innocent than mine ! 
How many souls more worthy far 
Of that sweet touch of thine ! 

5 Ah, Grace 1 into unlikeliest hearts 

It is thy boast to come. 
The glory of thy light to find 
In darkest spots a home. 

6 How will they die, how wil ^hey die, 

How bear the cross of grief, 

Who have not yet the light of faith, 

The courage of belief? 
426 



7 The crowd of cares, the weightiest eross. 

Seem trifles less than light. 
Earth looks so "ittle and so low. 
When faith i bines full and bright. 

8 Oh, happy, happy that I am ! 

If thou canst be, Faith ! 
The treasure that thou art in life. 
What wilt thou be in death ? 

933 

1 There is no sorrow, Lord ! too light 

To bring / 1 prayer to thee ; 
There is no anxious care too slight 
To wake thy sympathy. 

2 Thou who hast trod the thorny road 

Wilt share each small distress ; 
The love which bore the greater load 
Will not refuse the less. 

3 There is no secret sigh we breathe 

But meets thine ear divine ; 
And every cross grows light beneath 
The shadow, Lord I of thine. 



4 Life's ills without, sin's strife within, 
The heart would overflow. 
But for that love which died for sirv. 
That love which wept with woe.

For the day is passing by ; 



See ! the shades of evening gather, 
And the night is drawing nigh, 

2 Deeper, deeper grow the shadows, 

Paler now the glowing west. 
Swift the night of death advances ; 
Shall it be the night of rest ? 

3 Lonely seems the vale of shadow ; 

Sinks my heart with troubled fear ; 
Give me faith for clearer vision. 
Speak thou, Lord ! in words of cheer. 

4 Let me hear thy voice behind me. 

Calming all these wild alarms ; 
Let me, underneath my weakness, 
Feel the everlasting arms. 

5 Feeble, trembling, fainting, Jying, 

Lord ! I cast myself on thee ; 
Tarry with me through the darkness 
While I sleep still watch by me. 

6 Tarry with me, my Sa\iour ! 

Lay my head upon thy breast 

Till the morning ; then awake me — 

Morning of eternal rest.

1 There is a blessed home 

Beyond this land of woe 
Where trials never come, 

Nor tears of sorrow flow, 
Where faith is lost in sight. 

And patient hope is croM^ned, 
And everlasting light 

Its glory throws around. 

2 There is a land of peace ; 

Good angels know it well ; 
Glad songs that never cease 

Within its portals swell ; 
Around its glorious throne 

Ten thousand saints adore 
Christ, with the Father one, 

And Spirit, evermore. 



3 Oh, joy all joys beyond. 

To see the Lamb who died. 
And count each sacred wound 

In hands and feet and side ; 
To give to him the praise 

Of every triumph won. 
And sing through endless days 

The great things he hath done. 

4 Look up, ye saints of God, 

Nor fear to tread below 
The path your Saviour trod 

Of daily toil and woe ; 
Wait but a little while 

In uncomplaining love ; 
His own most gracious smile 

Shall welcome you above.

3 Oh, why should I wander an alien from thee, 

Or cry in the desert for bread ? 
Thy foes will rejoice when my sorrows they 
see, 
And smile at the tears I have shed. 

4 The joy of thy presence, dear Shepherd ! re- 

store ; 
I pant for the light of thy face ; 
An alien no longer, I '11 wander no more, 
But dwell in my Saviour's embrace.

1 O THOU in whose presence my soul takes de- 

light. 
On whom in affliction I call, 
Mv comfort by day and my song in the night, 
My hope, my salvation, my all ! 

2 Where dost thou at noontide resort with thy 

sheep 
To feed on the pastures of love ? 
Say, why in the valley of death should I weep, 
Or alone in the wilderness rove ? 

THE SWEETEST NAME. 



8s & 7s. D. 




1 There is no name so sweet on earth, 

No name so sweet in heaven. 
The name before his wondrous birth 
To Christ the Saviour given. 

We love to sing around our King, 

And hail him blessed Jesus ; 
For there 's no word ear ever heard 
So dear, so sweet, as Jesus. 

2 And when he hung upon the tree, 

They wrote this name above him, 
4{3 



Th^t all might see the reason we 
For evermore must love him. 

3 So now, upon his Father's throne, 

Almighty to release us 
From sin and pains, he ever reigns, 
The Prince and Saviour Jesus. 

4 Jesus ! b^ that matchless name 

Thy grace shall fail us never ; 
To-day as yesterday the same, 
Thou art the same for ever. 



CHILDREN, 



SAVIOUR, LIKE A SHEPHERD. 



8s & Is. D. 




1 Saviour ! like a shepherd lead us, 

Much we need thy tend'rest care ; 
In thy pleasant pastures feed us, 

For our use thy folds prepare. 
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus ! 

Thou hast bought us, thine we are, 
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus ! 

Thou hast bought us, thine we are 

2 We are thine, do thou befriend us, 

Be the guardian of our way ; 
Keep thy flock, from sin defend us, 
Seek us when we go astray. 

Blessed Jesus ! 
Hear, oh hear us, when we pray. 

HOLLEY. 



Thou hast promised to receive us. 
Poor and sinful though we be ; 

Thou hast mercy to relieve us, 
Grace to cleanse and power to free. 

Blessed Jesus ! 
We will early turn to thee. 



Early let us seek thy favor, 
Early let us do thy will ; _ 

Blessed Lord and only Saviour! 
With thy love our bosoms fill. 

Blessed Jesus ! 
Thou hast loved us, love us still.

Shall to heaven's blest mansions soar ? 
Who, an ever-welcome guest. 

In thy holy place shall rest? 

2 He whose heart thy love has warmed. 
He whose will, to thine conformed, 



Bids his life unsullied run, 

He whose words and thoughts a^e one ; 

He who trusts in Christ alone. 
Not in aught himself hath done. 
He, great God ! shall be thy care, 
And thy choicest blessings share.

1 Come, let us sing of Jesus, 

While hearts and accents blend 
Come, let us sing of Jesus, 

The sinner's only Friend ; 
His holy soul rejoices, 

Amid the choirs above, 
To hear our youthful voices 

Exulting in his love. 

2 We love to sing of Jesus, 

Who wept our path along ; 
We love to sing of Jesus, 

The tempted and the strong ; 
None who besought his healing 

He passed unheeded by, 

And still retains his feeling 

For us above the sky. 
432 



3 We love to sing of Jesus, 

Who died our souls to save ; 
We love to sing of Jesus, 

Triumphant o'er the grave ; 
And in our hour of danger 

We '11 trust his love alone 
Who once slept in a manger. 

And now sits on the throne. 

4 Then let us sing of Jesus 

While yet on earth we stay. 
And hope to sing of Jesus 

Throughout eternal day ; 
For those who here confess nim 

He will in heaven confess, 
And faithful hearts that bless him 

He will for ever bless.

'Neath the glory of the throne.

Lay we every burden down ;

Rippling with the Sa\'iour's face. 

Saints whom death will never sever 

Lift their songs of saving grace.

The beautiful, the beautiful rivei — 
Gather with the saints at the river 
That flows by the throne of God. 

2 On the margin of the river, 

Washing up its silver spray, 
We will walk and worship ever 
All the happy golden day.

Break, every mortal tie ;

Dark is the wilderness ;

Jesus is mine ! 
Here would I ever stay ;

Perishing things of clay, 
Born but for one brief day, 
Pass from my heart away ; 
Jesus is mine !

Welcome, ye scenes of rest, 
Welcome, ye mansions blest. 
Welcome, a Saviour's breast;

Dear Saviour ! ever at my side, 

How loving thou must be, 
To leave thy home in heaven to guard 

A little child like me ! 
Thy beautiful and shining face 

I see not, though so near : 
The sweetness of thy soft low voice 

I am too deaf to hear. 

I cannot feel thee touch my hand 
With pressure light and mild, 

To check me, as my mother did 
When I was but a child : 



THE CHILD'S DESIRE. 



But I have felt thee in my thoughts 

Fighting with sin for me ; 
And when my heart loves God, I know 

The sweetness is from thee. 

And when, dear Saviour ! I kneel down 

Morning and night to pray'r, 
Something there is within my heart 

Which tells me thou art there ; 
Yes, when I pray, thou prayest too. 

Thy pray'r is then for me ; 
And when I sleep, thou, sleeping not, 

Dost watch me lovingly. 

P.M.

1 I THINK, when I read that sweet story of old. 

When Jesus was here among men, 
How he called little children as lambs to his fold, 
I should like to have been with them then. 

2 I wish that his hands had been placed on my head, 

That his arms had been thrown around me, 
And that I might have seen his kind look when he said, 
" Let the little ones come unto me." 

3 Yet still to his footstool in prayer I may go. 

And ask for a share in his love ; 
And if I thus earnestly seek him below, 
I shall see him and hear him above, 

4 In that beautiful place he is gone to prepare 

For all who are washed and forgiv'n ; 
And many dear children are gathering there, 
" For of such is the kingdom of heav'n." 

5 I long for the joys of that glorious time, 

The sweetest and brightest and best. 
When the dear little children of every clime 
Shall crowd to his arms and be blest.

1 I LOVE to tell the story 

Of unseen things above, 
Of Jesus and his glory, 

Of Jesus and his love. 
I love to tell the story, 

Because I know it 's true ; 
It satisfies my lonsiings 
As nothing else .'an do. 
I love to tell the story, 
'T will be my theme in glory, 
To tell the old, old story, 
Of Jesus and his love. 

2 I love to tell the story ; 

More wonderful it seems 
Than all the golden fancies 

Of all our golden dreams. 
I love to tell the story, 

It did so much for me ; 
U6 



And that is just the reason 
I tell it now to thee. 

3 I love to tell the story ; 

'T is pleasant to repeat 
What seems, each time I tell it, 

More wonderfully sweet. 
I love to tell the story. 

For some have never heard 
The message of salvation 

From God's own holy word. 

4 I love to tell the story ; 

For those who know it best 
Seem hungering and thirsting 

To hear it like the rest. 
And when, in scenes of glory, 

I sing the new, new song, 
'T will be the old, old story 

That I have loved so long.

1 Tell me the old, old story 

Of unseen things above, 
Of Jesus and his glory, 

Of Jesus and his love. 
Tell me the story simply, 

As to a little child, 
For I am -rveak and weary, 
And helpless and defiled. 
Tell me the old, old story, 
Tell me the old, old story, 
Tell me the old, old story. 
Of Jesus and his love. 

2 TbU me the «iTory slowly, 

That I may take it in — 
That wonderful redemption, 

God's remedy for sin. 
Tell me the story often, 

For I forget so soon ! 



The " early dew " of morning 
Has passed away at noon. 

3 Tell me the story softly, 

With earnest tones, and grave ; 
Remember I 'm the sinner 

Whom Jesus came to save. 
Tell me the story always, 

If you would really be, 
In any time of trouble, 

A comforter to me. 

4 Tell me the same old story 

When you have cause to fear 
That this world's empty gloiy 

Is costing me too dear. 
Yes, and when that world's glory 

Is dawning on my soul, 
Tell me the old, old story : 

"Christ Jesus makes thee whole."

1 Stand up, stand up for Jesus, 

Ye soldiers of the cross ; 
Lift high his royal banner. 

It must not suffer loss ; 
From victory unto victory 

His army shall he lead 
Till every foe is vanquished, 

And Christ is Lord indeed. 

2 Stand up, stand up for Jesus ; 

The trumpet call obey ; 
Forth to the mighty conflict 

In this his glorious day : 
" Ye that are men, now serve him " 

Against unnumbered foes ; 
Y )ur courage rise with danger. 

And strength to strength oppose. 



3 Stand up, stand up for Jesus, 

Stand in his strength alone ; 
The arm of flesh will fail you. 

Ye dare not trust your own ; 
Put on the gospel armor. 

And watching unto prayer. 
Where duty calls, or danger, 

Be never wanting there. 

4 Stand up, stand up for Jesus ; 

The strife will not be long 
This day the noise of battle, 

The next the victor's song ; 
To him that overcometh 

A crown of life shall be : 

He with the King of glory 

Shall reign eternally.

A shield when danger presses ; 
A ready help in ev'ry hour 
When doubt or pain distresses : 
For our malignant foe 
Unswerving aims his blow ; 
His fearful arms the while, 
Dark pow'r and darker guile ; 
His hidden craft is matchless.

Our courage soon defection ; 
But comes a Warrior clad in might, 
A prince of God's election ; 



Who is this wondrous Chief 
That brings this glad relief? 
The field of battle boasts 
Christ Jesus, Lord of hosts, 
Still conq'ring and to conquer.

With mighty succor stay us ; 
Oh, turn aside the deadly harm 
When Satan would betray us, 
That, rescued by thy hand, 
In triumph we may stand, 
And round thy footstool crowd 
In joy to sing aloud 
High praise to our Redeemer.

Lord God, our Saviour ! to thy praise ; 
Oh, make thy gracious presence known 
While now we lay its corner-stone.

Deign by thy Spirit to appear ; 

On all its walls salvation write. 
From corner-stone to topmost height. 

3 And when this temple " made with hands " 
Upon its firm foundation stands, 



Oh, may we all with loving heart 
In nobler building bear a part, 

Where every polished stone shall be 
A human soul won back to thee ; 
All resting upon Christ alone, 
The chief and precious Corner-stone. 

So, when our toil is o'er at last, 
All labor in both temples past. 
Oh, may it then by works be shown 
That faith hath laid the corner-stone.

To guard our native shore, 
And shot and shell are answering

Till war and dangers cease ; 
Defend the right, put up the sword, 

And through the world make peace. 
To thee, the Father, thee, the Son, 

Whom earth and sky adore. 
And Spirit, moving o'er the deep, 

Be praise for evermore.

1 Eternal Father ! strong to save, 
Whose arm hath bound the restless wav( 
Who bid'st the mighty ocean deep 

Its own appointed hmits keep, 

2 Christ ! whose voice the waters heard 
And hushed their raging at thy word, 

ARMENIA. 



Who walkedst on the foaming deep, 
And calm amidst its rage did sleep. 
Most Holy Spirit ! who didst brood 
Upon the chaos dark and rude, 
And bid its angrj' tumult cease. 
And give, for wild confusion, peace,

1 We come, Lord ! before thy throne. 

And with united plea 
We meet and pray for those who roam 
Far off upon the sea. 

2 Oh may the Holy Spirit bow 

The sailor's heart to thee. 



Till tears of deep repentance flow 

Like rain-drops in the sea. 

3 Then may a Saviour's dying love 

Pour peace into his breast, 

And waft him to the port above 

Of everlasting rest.

1 Christ is our Corner-stone, 

On him alone we build ; 
With his true saints alone 
The courts of heaven are filled ; 
On his great love 
Our hopes we place 
Of present grace 
And joys above. 

2 Oh; then with hymns of praise 

These hallowed courts shall ring, 
Our voices we will raise 
The three in one to sing ; 
And thus proclaim 
In joyful song 
Both loud and long 
That glorious name. 

3 Here, gracious God ! do thou 

For evermore draw nigh ; 
Accept each faithful vow. 
And mark each suppliant sigh ; 
In copious shower 
On all who pray 
Each holy day 
Thy blessings pour. 

4 Here may we gain from heaven 

The grace which we implore ; 
And miiy that grace, once given, 
Be with us ever more, 
446 



963 



Until that day 
When all the blest 
To endless rest 

Are called away. 



1 In sweet exalted strains 

The King of glory praise ; 
O'er heaven and earth he reigns 

Through everlasting days ; 
He at his will the world controls, 
Sustains or sinks the distant poles. 

2 To earth he bends his throne — 

His throne of grace divine ; 
Wide is his bounty known, 

And wide his glories shine ; 
Fair Salem, still his chosen rest. 
Is with his smiles and presence blest. 

3 Great King of glory ! come, 

And with thy favor crown 
This temple as thy dome. 

This people as thy own ; 
Beneath this roof, oh, deign to show 
How God can dwell with men below. 

4 Here may thine ears attend 

Thy people's humble cries. 
And grateful praise ascend. 

All-fragrant, to the skies ; 
Here may thy word melodious sound 
And spread celestial joys around.

1 The church's one foundation 

Is Jesus Christ her Lord ; 
She is his new creation 

By water and the word ; 
From heaven he came and sought her 

To be his holy bride, 
With his own blood he bought her, 

And for her life he died. 

2 Though with a scornful wonder 

Men see her sore opprest, 
By schisms rent asunder. 
By heresies distrest. 



Yet saints their watch are keeping, 
Their cry goes up, " How long?" 

And soon the night of weeping 
Shall be the morn of song. 

3 'Mid toil and tribulation 

And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 

Of peace for evermore ; 
Till with the vision glorious 

Her longing eyes are blest. 
And the great church victorious 

Shall be the church at rest.

1 Saviour ! again to thy dear name we raise 
"With one accord our parting hymn of praise ; 
"We stand to bless thee ere our worship cease, 
Then, lowly kneeling, wait thy word of peace. 

2 Grant us thy peace upon our homeward way ; 
With thee began, with thee shall end, the day ; 
Guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame, 
That in this house have called upon thy name. 

3 Grant us thy peace, Lord ! through the coming night, 
Turn thou for us its darkness into light ; 

From harm and danger keep thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to thee. 



4 Grant us thy peace throughout our earthly life, 
Our balm in sorrow and our stay in strife ; 
Then when thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, 
Call us, Lord ! to thine eternal peace.

Tender Shepherd of thy sheep ! 
Let thy mercy and thy care 
All our souls in safety keep.

Sweeten every cross and pain ;

Give us, if we Hve, ere long 
Here to meet in peace again.

Help us to feed upon thy word ; 
All that has been amiss forgive. 
And let thy truth within us live. 

2 Though we are guilty, thou art good; 
Wash all our works in Jesus' blood ; 
Give every fettered soul release, 
And bid us all depart in peace.

969 See Hymn 781. 

1 There is a land of pure delight, 

Where saints immortal reign ; 
Infinite day excludes the night, 
And pleasures banish pain. 

2 There everlasting spring abides. 

And never-withering flowers ; 

Death, like a narrow sea, divides 

This heavenly land from ours. 

3 Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood 

Stand dressed in living green ; 

So to the Jews old Canaan stood, 

While Jordan rolled between. 

4 But timorous mortals start and shrink. 

To cross this narrow sea, 
And linger, shivering, on the brink, 
And fear to launch away. 

6 Oh, could we make our doubts remove, 
Those gloomy doubts that rise, 
And see the Canaan that we love 
With unbeclouded eyes, 



6 Could we but climb where Moses stood, 
And view the landscape o'er, 
Not Jordan's stream nor death's cold flood 
Should fright us from the shore. 

y 70 See Hymn 783. 

1 On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, 

And cast a wishful eye 
To Canaan's fair and happy land, 
Where my possessions lie. 

2 Oh, the transporting, rapturous scene 

That rises to my sight ! 
Sweet fields arrayed in living green, 
And rivers of delight. 

3 When shall I reach that happy place, 

And be for ever blest ? 
When shall I see my Father's face. 
And in his bosom rest ? 

4 Filled with delight, my raptured soul 

Would here no longer stay ; 
Though Jordan's waves around me roll. 
Fearless I 'd launch away.

Thy joys when shall I see? 

2 happy harbor of God's saints I 

sweet and pleasant soil ! 



In thee no sorrow can be found, 
Nor grief, nor care, nor toil. 

3 Thy walls are made of precious stone. 

Thy bulwarks diamond-square. 

Thy gates are all of Orient pearl ;

3 Large are the mansions in thy Father's 

dwelling, 

Glad are the homes that sorrows never 
dim; 
Sweet are the harps in holy music swelling, 

Soft are the tones which raise the heav- 
enly hymn. 

4 There, like an Eden blossoming in glad- 

ness, 

Bloom the fair flowers the earth too 
rudely pressed : 
Come unto me, all ye who droop in sad- 
ness. 

Come unto me, and I will give you 
rest 



972 

1 Come unto me when shadows darkly ga- 

ther, 
When the sad heart is weary and dis- 
tressed. 
Seeking for comfort from your heavenly 
Father ; 
Come unto me, and I will give you rest, 

2 Ye who have mourned when the spring 

flowers were taken. 
When the ripe fruit fell richly to the 
ground. 
When the loved slept, in brighter homes 
to waken, 
Where their pale brows with spirit- 
wreaths are crowned.

1 From the recesses of a lowly spirit 

Our humble prayer ascends. | Fa " ther ! | hear it ; || 
Borne on the trembling wings of | fear •• and | meekness, 
For- I give *' its | weakness. 

2 We know, we feel, how mean and how unworthy 
The lowly sacrifice we | pour ** be- | fore thee ; — || 
What can we offer thee, — | thou " most | holy ! — || 

But I sin •• and | folly ? 

3 Lord ! in thy sight, who every bosom viewest, 
Cold in our warmest vows, and | vain our | truest ; || 
Thoughts of a hurrying hour — our | lips re- | peat them — 

Our I hearts " for- 1| get them. 

4 We see thy hand — it leads us, it supports us : — 

We hear thy voice — it | counsels " and it | courts us : — 1| 
And then we turn away !— yet | still •• thy | kindness |j 
For- I gives *• our [ blindness. 

5 Who can resist thy gentle call, — appealing 

To every generous thought and | grateful | feeling?— |( 
Oh, who can hear the accents | of** thy | mercy, || 

And I nev •* er | love thee ? 

6 Kind Benefactor ! plant within this bosom 

The I seeds " of | holiness,— || and let them blossom 
In fragrance, — and in beauty | bright ** and | vernal, — || 
And I spring ** e- | ternal. 



7 Then place them in those everlasting gardens 
Where angels walk — and | seraphs ■* are the | wardens ; — ( 
Where every flower, brought safe through | death's " dark- 
Be- 1 comes *• im- | mortal.

1 Come, labor on ; 

AVho dares stand idle on the | harvest plain, 
While all around him waves the | golden grain, 
And every servant hears the | Master say, 
"Go, work to-day"? 

2 Come, labor on ; 

The laborers are few, the | field is wide ; 
New stations must be filled, and | blanks supplied ; 
From voices distant far or | near at home 
The call is " Come." 

3 Come, labor on ; 

The enemy is watching, | night and day. 
To sow the tares, to snatch the | seed away ; 
While we in sleep our duty | have forgot, 
He slumbered not. 

4 Come, labor on ; 

Away with gloomy doubt and | faithless fear! 
No arm so weak but may do | service here ; 
By feeblest agents can our | God fulfill 
His righteous will. 

5 Come, labor on ; 

No time for rest till glows the | western sky, 
While the long shadows o'er our | pathway lie, 
And a glad sound comes with the I setting sun, 
"Servants, well done!" 

6 Come, labor on ; 

The toil is pleasant, the re- | ward is sure : 
Blessed are those who to the | end endure ; 
How full their joy, how deep their | rest shall be, 
Lord ! with thee !

1 One sweetly solemn thought 

Comes to me | o'er and | o'er : || 
I 'm nearer my home to-day 
Than I | ever have | been be- 1 fore ; 

2 Nearer my Father's house, 

Where the many | mansions | be ; || 
Nearer the great white throne, 
I Nearer the | crystal | sea ; || 

3 Nearer the bound of life, 

Where we lay our | burdens | down 
Nearer leaving the cross, 

I Nearer | gaining the | crown. [|

4 But the waves of that silent sea 

Roll dark be- | fore my | sight, 1| 
That brightly the other side 

I Break on a | shore of | light. || 

5 Oh, if my mortal feet 

Have almost | gained the | brink, 
If it be I am nearer home 

I Even to- | day than I [ think, || 

6 Father ! perfect my trust. 

Let my spirit | feel in | death || 
That her feet are firmly set 

On the I Rock of a | living | faith.

1 Birds have their | quiet nest, 

Foxes their holes, and | man his peaceful bed ; 
All creatures | have their rest ; 
But Jesus had not | where to lay his head. 

2 And yet he | came to give 

The weary and the | heavy laden rest, 
To bid the | sinner live, 
And soothe our griefs to | slumber on his breast. 

3 What, then, am ] I, my God, 

Permitted thus the | path of peace to tread ? 
Peace, purchased | by the blood 
Of him who had not | where to lay his head ' 

4 I, who once | made him grieve, 

I, who once bid his i gentle spirit mourn, 
Whose hand es- | sayed to weave 
For his meek brow the | cruel crown of thorn ! 

5 Oh, why should | I have peace ? 

Why ? but for that un- | changed, undying love 
Which would not, | could not cease. 
Until it made me | heir of joys above? 

6 Yes; but for | pardoning grace, 

I feel I never | should in glory see 
The brightness | of that face 

That once was pale and | agonized for me. 

• 

7 Let the birds | seek their nest, 

Foxes their holes, and 1 man his peaceful bed ; 
Come, Saviour, | in my breast 
Deign to repose thine I oft-rejected head. 

8 Come, give me | rest, and take 

The only rest on | earth thou lov'st, within 
A heart that | for thy sake 
Lies bleeding, broken, | penitent for sin.

Oh, words with heavenly comfort fraught! 

Whate'er I do, where'er I be, 

Still 't is God's hand that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, he leadeth me ; 
By his own hand he leadeth me ; 
His faithful foll'wer I would be, 
Foi by his hand he leadeth me.

Sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom. 



By waters still, o'er troubled sea, —

He leadeth me, etc.

Nor ever murmur nor repine. 
Content, whatever lot I see, 

Since *t is my God that leadeth me. 
He leadeth me, etc.

When by thy grace the victory's won. 
E'en death's cold wave I will not flee. 
Since God through Jordan leadeth me. 

He leadeth me, etc.

THE 



FORM OF GOVERNMENT 



FORMS OF PROCESS 

OP THE 

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH LN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; 

AS AMENDED AND RATIFIED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. 



BOOK I. 

OF GOVERNMENT. 



CHAPTER I. 

PRELIMINARY PRINCIPLES.* 

The Presbyterian Church in the United States of 
America, in presenting to the Christian public the 
gystem of union, and the form of government and 
discipline which they have adopted, have thought 
proper to state, by way of introduction, a few of the 
general principles by which they have been governed 
in the formation of the plan, this, it is hoped, will, 
in some measure, prevent those rash misconstructions 
and uncandid reflections, which usually proceed from 
an imperfect view of any subject ; as well as make the 
several parts of the system plain, and the whole per- 
spicuous and fully understood. 

They are unanimously of opinion : 

I. That '•' God alone is Lord of the conscience : and 
hath left it free from the doctrine and commandments 
of men, which are in anything contrary to his word, or 
beside it in matters of" faith or worship :" Therefore 
they consider the rights of private judgment in all 
matters that respect religion, as universal and un- 
alienable: they do not even wish to see any religious 
constitution aided by the civil power, further than 
may be necessary for protection and security, and, at 
the same time, be equal and common to all others. 

II. That, in perfect consistency with the above 
principle of common right, every Christian church, or 
union or association of particular churches, is entitled 
to declare the terms of admission into its conDnuuion, 
dind the qualifications of its ministers and members, as 
'v^cll as the whole system of its internal government 
which Christ hath appointed: that, in the exercise of 
this right, they may, notwithstanding, err, in making ! 
the terms of communion either too lax or too narrow : ] 
yet, even in this case, they do not infringe upon the 
liberty or the rights of others, but only make an im- 
proper use of their own, 

* Note. — This introductory chapter, with the excep- 
tion of the first sentence, was "first drawn up by the Synod 
of New York and Philadelphia, and prefixed to the Form 
of Government, &c., as published by that body in 17SS. In 
that rear, after arraocins the plan on which the Presby- j 
terian Church is now governed, the Synod was divided into 
four S/nods, and gave place to the General Assembly, which 
met for the first time in 1789. 



III, That our blessed Saviour, for the edification O) 
the visible church, which is his body, hath appointed 
ofl&cers, not only to preach the gospel and admini-^tet 
the sacraments : but also to exercise discipline, for the 
preservation both of truth and duty; and, that it i? 
incumbent upon these officers, and upon the whole 
church, in whose name they act, to censure or cast out 
the erroneous and scandalous; observing, in all cases, 
the rules contained in the word of God. 

IV, That truth is in order to goodness ; and the 
great touchstone of truth, its tendency to promote 
holiness ; according to our Saviour's rule, '' by their 
fruits ye shall know them." And that no opinion 
can be either more pernicious or more absurd, than 
that which brings truth and falsehood upon a level, 
and represents it as of no consequence what a man's 
opinions are. On the contrary, they are persuaded 
that there is an inseparable connection between faith 
and practice, truth and duty. Otherwise it would be 
of no consequence either to discover truth, or to 
embrace it, 

V, That while under the conviction of the above 
principle, they think it necessary to make effectual 
provision, that all who are admitted as teachers, be 
sound in the faith ; they also believe that there are 
truths and forms, with respect to which men of good 
characters and j.'rinciples may differ. And in all these 
they think it the duty, both of private Christians and 
societies, to exercise mutual forbearance towards each 
other. 

YI, That though the character, qualifications and 
authority of church officers, are laid down in the holy 
Scriptures, as well as the proper method of theii 
investiture and institution: yet the election of the 
persons to the ex^'-cise of this authority, in any par- 
ticular society, is in that society. 

YII. That all church power, whether exercised by 
the body in general, or in the way of representation by 
delegated authority, is only ministerial and declara- 
tive; that is to say, that the Holy Scriptures are the 
only rule of faith and manners; that no church juli- 
satory ought to pretend to make laws, to bind the 
sonscience, in virtue of their own authority: and that 
all their decisions should be founded upon the revealed 
will of God. Now though it will easily be admitted, 

515 



FORM OF GOVERNMENT. 



that all BjDjds and councils may err, through the 
frailty- inseparable from humanity ; yet there is much 
greater danger from the usurped claim of making 
la-vs, than from the right of judging upon laws 
already made, and common to all who profess the 
gospel ; although this right, as necessity requires in 
the present state, be lodged with fallible men. 

VIII. Lastly. That, if the preceding scriptural and 
ratioiKil principles be steadfastly adhered to, the vigor 
and strictness of its discipline will contribute to the 
glory and happiness of any church. Since ecclesiasti- 
cal discipline must be purely moral or spiritual in 
its object, and not attended with any civil effects, it 
can derive no force whatever, but from its own justice, 
the approbation of an impartial public, and the 
countenance and blessing of the great Head of the 
church universal. 



CHAPTER II. 



OF THE CHURCH. 

I. Jesus Christ, who is now exalted far above all 
principality and power, hath erected, in this world, a 
kingdom, which is his Church. 

II. The universal church consists of all those per- 
sons, in every nation, together with their children who 
make profession of the holy religion of Christ, and of 
submission to his laws. 

III. As this immense multitude cannot meet to- 
gether in one place, to hold communion, or to worship 
God, it is reasonable, and warranted by Scrii)ture ex- 
ample, that they should be divided into many par- 
ticular churches. 

IV. A particular church consists of a number of 
professing Christians, with their offspring, voluntarily 
associated together, for divine worship and godly liv- 
ing, agreeably to the Holy Scriptures ; and submit- 
ting to a certain form of government. 



to declare the will of Gcd to sinners, and to beseech 
them to be reconciled to God through Christ, he is 
termed ambassador. And, as he dispenses the mani- 
fold grace of God, and the ordinances instituted by 
Christ, he is termed steward of the mysteiies of God. 



CHAPTER V. 

OF RULING ELDERS. 

Ruling elders are properly the representatives ol 
the ]»eople, chosen by them for the purpose of exercis- 
ing government and discipline, in conjunction with 
pastors or ministers. This oflSce has been under- 
stood by a great part of the Protestant Reformed 
Churches, to be designated in the holy Scriptures, by 
the title of governments; and of those who rule well, 
but do not labor in the word and doctrine. 



CHAPTER III. 

OF THE OFFICERS OF THE CHURCH. 

I. Our blessed Lord at first collected his church out 
of different nations, and formed it into one body, by 
the mission of men endued with miraculous gifts, 
which have long since ceased. 

II. The ordinary and perpetual officers in the 
church are Bishops, or Pastors; the representatives 
of the people, usually styled Ruling Elders; and 

Deacons. 

^ 

CHAPTER IV. 

OP BISHOPS OR PASTORS. 

The pastoral oflRce is the first in the church, both 
for dijrnity and usefulness. The person who fills 
this office, hath, in Scripture, obtained different names 
exjiressive of his various duties. As he has the over- 
sight of the flock of Christ, he is termed bishop.* 
As he feeds them with spiritual food, he is termed 
pastor. As he serves Christ in his church, he is 
termed minister. As it is his duty to be grave antl 
prudent, and an example to the flock, and to govern 
well in the house and kingdom of Christ, he is termed 
presbyter or elder. As he is the messenger of God, 
he is termed the angel of the church. As he is seti< 
*A8 the office and character of the gosyiel minister Is 
particularlv and fullv described in the Holy Scri))ture8. 
under the 'title of bishop; an<l as this term is peculiarly 
expressive of his duty as an overseer of the flock, it oughi 
-yit to be rfjeeted. 

5in 



CHAPTER VI. 

OF DEACONS. 

The Scriptures clearly point out deacons as distinct 
officers in the church, whose business it is to take 
care of the poor, and to distribute among them the 
collections which may be raised for their use. To 
them also may be properly committed the management 
of the temporal affairs of the church. 



CHAPTER VII. 

OF ORDINANCES IN A PARTICULAR CHURCH. 

The ordinances established by Christ, the head, in 
a particular church, which is regularly constituted 
with its proper officers, are prayer, singing praises, 
reading, expounding and preaching the word of 
God; administering bapti?m and the Lord's sup- 
per ; public solemn fasting and thanksgiving, cate- 
chizing, making collections for the poor and other 
pious jturposesj exercising discipline: and blessing 
the people. 



CHAPTER VITL 

OF CHtTRCH GOVERNMENT, AND THE SEVERAL KINDS. 
OF JUDICATORIES. 

I. It is absolutely necessary that the government 
of the church be exercised under some certain and 
definite form. And we hold it to be expedient, and 
agreeable to Scripture and the practice of the primi- 
tive Christians, that the church be governed by con- 
gregational, presbyterial, and synodical assemblies. 
In full consistency with this belief, we embrace, in 
the spirit of charity, those Christians who differ from 
us. in opinion and practice, on these subjects. 

II. These assemblies ought not to possess any civil 
jurisdiction, nor to inflict any civil penalties. Their 
power is wholly moral or spiritual, and that only min- 
isterial and declarative. They possess the right of 
requiring obedience to the laws of Christ; and of ex- 
cluding the lisobedient and disorderly from the privi- 
leges of the church. To give efficiency, however, to 
this necessary and scriptural authority, they possesj 
the powers requisite for obtaining evidence and in- 
flicting censure. They can call before them any 
offender against the order and government of the 
church ; they can require members of their own so- 
ciety to appear and give testimony in the cause; but 
the highest punishment to which their authority ex- 
tends, is to exclude the contumacious and impeniten* 



FORM OF GOVERNMENT. 



CHAPTER IX. 

OP THE CHURCH SESSION. 

I. The Church session consists of the pastor or 
pastors, and ruling elders, of a particular congre- 
gation. 

II. Of this judicatory, two elders, if there be as 
many in the congregation, with the pastor, shall be 
necessary to constitute a quorvim. 

III. The pastor of the congregation shall always 
be the moderator of the session; except when, for 
prudential reasons, it may appear advisable that some 
other minister should be invited to preside ; in which 
case the pastor may, with the concurrence of the ses- 
sion, invite such other minister as they may see meet, 
belonging to the same presbytery, to preside in that 
case. The same expedient maybe adopted in the case 
of the sickness or absence of the pastor. 

IV. It is expedient, at every meeting of the session, 
more especially when constituted for judicial business, 
that there be a presiding minister. When, therefore, 
a church is without a pastor, the moderator of the 
session shall be, either the minister appointed for 
that purpose by the presbytery, or one invited by the 
session to preside on a particular occasion. But where 
it is impracticable, without great inconvenience, to 
procure the attendance of such a moderator, the ses- 
sion may proceed without it. 

V. In congregations whei 
pastors, they shall, when present, alternately preside 
in the session. 

^^I. The Church session is charged with maintain- 
ing the spiritual government of the congregation; 
for which purpose, they have power to inquire into 
the knowledge and Christian conduct of the members 
\ of the church ; to call before them offenders and wit- 

nesses, being members of their own congregation, and 
to introduce other witnesses, where it may be neces- 
sary to bring the process to issue, and when they can 
be procured to attend; to receive members into the 
church; to admonish, to rebuke, to suspend, or ex- 
clude from the sacraments, those who are found to de- 
serve censure ; to concert the best measures for pro- 
moting the spiritual interests of the congregation; 
.%nd to appoint delegates to the higher judicatories of 
the church. 

VII. The pastor has power to convene the session 
s^hen he may judge it requisite; and he shall always 
jonvene them when requested to do so by any two of 
the elders. The session shall also convene when 
directed so to do by the presbytery. 

VIII. Every session shall keep a fair record of its 
proceedings; which record shall be, at least once in 
every year, submitted to the inspection of the pres- 
bytery. 

IX. It is important that every church session keep 
a fair register of marriages ; ot baptisms, with the 
times of the birth of the individuals baptized; of per- 
sons admitted to the Lord's table, and of deaths, and 
other removals of church members. 



CHAPTER X. 

OF THE PRESBYTERY. 

I The Church being divided into many separate 
congregations, these need mutual counsel and assist- 
ance, in order to preserve soundness of doctrine, and 
regularity of discipline, and to enter into common 
measures for promoting knowledge and religion, and 



for preventing infidelity, error, and immorality. 
Hence arise the importance and usefulness of presby- 
terial and synodical assemblies. 

ii. A presbytery consists of all the ministers, in 
number not less than five, and one ruling elder from 
each congregation, within a certain district. 

III. Every congregation, which has a stated pastor, 
has a right to be represented by one elder ; and every 
collegiate church by two or more elders, in proportion 
to the number of its pastors. 

IV. When two or more congregations are united 
under one pastor, all such congregations shall have 
but one elder to represent them. 

V. Every vacant congregation, which is 'regularly 
organized, shall be entitled to be represented by a 
ruling elder in presbytery. 

VI. Every elder not known to the presbytery, shall 
produce a certificate of his regular appointment from 
the church which he represents. 

VII. Any three ministers, and as many elders as 
may be present belonging to the presbytery, being 
met at the time and place appointed, shall be a quo- 
rum competent to proceed to business. 

VIII. The presbytery has power to receive and 
issue appeals from church sessions and references 
brought before them in an orderly manner; to ex- 
amine and license candidates for the holy ministry ; 
to ordain, install, remove, and judge ministers; to 
examine and approve or censure the records of church 
sessions; to resolve questions of doctrine or discipline 
seriously and reasonably proposed; to condemn erro- 
neous opinions which injure the purity or peace of the 
church ; to visit particular churches, for the purpose 
of inquiring into their state, and redressing the evils 
that may have arisen in them ; to unite or divide 
congregations, at the request of the people, or to form 
or receive new congregations, and in general to order 
whatever pertains to the spiritual welfare of the 
churches under their care. 

IX. It shall be the duty of the presbytery to keep a 
full and fair record of their proceedings, and to report 
to the synod every year, licensures, ordinations, the 
receiving or dismissing of members, the removal of 
members by death, the union or division of congrega- 
tions, or the formation of new ones ; and in general, 
all the important changes which may have taken 
place within their bounds in the course of the year. 

X. The presbytery shall meet on its own adjourn- 
ment; and when any emergency shall require a meet- 
ing sooner than the time to which it stands adjourned, 
the moderator, or in case of his absence, death or 
inability to act, the stated clerk, shall, with the con- 
currence, or at the request of two ministers and two 
elders, the elders being of difi'erent congregations, call 
a special meeting. For this purpose he shall send a 
circular letter, specifying the particular business of 
the intended meeting, to every minister belongins tc 
the presbytery, and to the session of every vacant 
congregation, in due time previous to the meeting ; 
which shall not be less than ten days. And nothing 
shall be transacted at such special meeting besides the 
particular business for which the judicatory has been 
thus convened. 

XI. At every meeting of presbytery, a sermon shall 
be delivered, if convenient ; and every particular 
session shall be opened and closed with prayer. 

XII. Ministers in good standing in other presby- 
teries, or in any sister churches, who may happen to 
bo present, may be invited to sit with the presbytery 
as corresponding members. Such members shall ba 

517 



FORM OF GOVERNMENT. 



entitled to deliberate and advise, but not to vote in 
any decisions of the presbytery. 



CHAPTER XL 



OP THE SYNOD. 



I. As a presbytery is a convention of the bishops 
and elders within a certain district : so a synod is a 
convention of the bishops and elders within a larger 
district, including at least three presbyteries. The 

ntio of the representation of elders in the synod is 
he same as in the presbytery. 

II. Any seven ministers, belonging to the synod, 
who shall convene at the time and place of meeting, 
with as many elders as may be ])resent, shall be a 
quorum to transact synodical business ; provided not 
more than three of the said ministers belong to one 
presbytery. 

III. The same rule, as to corresponding members, 
which was laid down with respect to the presbytery, 
shall apply to the synod. 

IV. The synod has power to receive and issue all 
ap])eals regularly brought up from presbyteries; pro- 
vided, that in the trial of judicial cases the synod shall 
have power to act by Commission, in accordance with 
the provisions on the subject of Judicial Commissions 
in the Book of Discipline; to decide all references 
made to them; its decisions on appeals, complaints, 
and references, which do not affect the doctrine or 
constitution of the church, being final; to review the 
records of presbyteries, and approve or censure them : 
to redress whatever has been done by presbyteries 
contrar}' to order ; to take effectual care that pres- 
byteries observe the constitution of the church : to 
erect new presbyteries, and unite or divide those which 
were before erected ; generally to take such order with 
respect to the presbyteries, sessions, and people under 
their care, as may be in conformity with the word of 
God and the established rules, and which tend to 
promote the edification of the church; and, finally, to 
propose to the general assembly, for their adoption, 
such measures as may be of common advantage to the 
whole church. 

V. The synod shall convene at least once in each 
year; at the opening of which a sermon shall be 
delivered by the moderator, or, in case of his absence, 
by some other member; and every particular session 
shall be opened and closed with prayer. 

"VI. It shall be the duty of the synod to keep full 
and fair records of its proceedings, to submit them 
anually to the inspection of the (jSeneral Assembly, 
and to report to the Assembly the number of its pres- 
byteries, and of the members and alterations of the 
presbyteries. 

CHAPTER XII. 

OF THE GEN'KRAL ASSEMCLV.* 

I. TnK General Assembly is the highest judicatory 
)f the Presbytjrian Church. It shall represent, in 
one body, all the particular churches of this denomi- 
nation ; and shall bear the title of Thk General As- 

BEM6LY0P THE PRESBYTERIAN ChUUCH IN THE UnITET 

States of America. 

II. The General Assembly shall consist of an equal 
ielegation of bishops and elders from each presbytery, 
»n the following proportion ; viz. : each presbytery con 

* The radical principles of Presbyterian church govern- 
ment and discipline are: — That the several different con- 
gregations of believers, taken collectively, constitute one 
church of Christ, called emphatically the church ;— that a 
larger part of the church, or a repres^^ntation of it, should 
govern a smaller, or deicrniine matters of coulruversv 
518 



sisting of not more than twenty-four ministers, shall 
send one minister and one elder; and each presbytery 
consisting of more than twenty-four ministers, shall 
send one minister and one elder for each twenty-four 
ministers, or for each additional fractional number of 
ministers not less than twelve; and these delegates, so 
ap])ointed, shall be styled, Commissioners to the Gen- 
eral Assembly. 

III. Any fourteen or more of these commissioners, 
one half of whom shall be ministers, being met on the 
day, and at the place appointed, shall be a quorum 
for the transaction of business. 

IV. The General Assembly shall receive and issue 
all appeals, complaints, and references that affect the 
doctrine or constitution of the church, which may be 
regularly brought before them from the inferior judi- 
catories ; provided, that in the trial of judicial cases 
the General Assembly shall have power to act by 
Commission, in accordance with the provisions on 
the subject of Judicial Commissions in the Book of 
Discipline. They shall review the records of every 
synod, and approve or censure them : they shall give 
their advice and instruction in all cases submitted 
to them in conformity with the constitution of the 
church ; and they shall constitute the bond of union, 
peace, correspondence, and mutual confidence, among 
all our churches. 

V. To the General Assembly also belongs the power 
of deciding in all controversies respecting doctrine 
and discijjline; of reproving, warning, or bearing 
testimony against error in doctrine, or immorality in 
practice, in any church, presbytery, or synod; of 
erecting new synods when it may be judged necessary 
of superintending the concerns of the whole church ; 
of corresponding with foreign churches, on such terms 
as may be agreed upon by the Assembly and the cor- 
responding body; of suppressing schismatical con- 
tentions and disputations; and, in general, of recom- 
mending and attempting reformation of manners, 
and the promotion of charity, truth, and holiness, 
through all the churches under their care. 

VI. Before any overtures or regulations, proposed 
by the Assembly to be established as constitutional 
rules, shall be obligatory on the churches, it shall be 
necessary to transmit them to all the presbj'teries, and 
to receive the returns of at least a majority of them, 
in writing, approving thereof. 

VII. The General Assembly shall meet at least once 
in every year. On the day appointed for that pur- 
pose, the moderator of the last Assembly, if present, 
or in case of his absence, some other minister, shall 
open the meeting with a sermon, and preside unfil a 
new moderator be chosen. No commissioner shall 
have a right to deliberate or vote in the Assembly, 
until his name shall have been enrolled by the clerk, 
and his commission examined, and filed among the 
papers of the Assembly. 

VIII. Each session of the Assembly shall be opened 
and closed with prayer. And the whole business of 
the Assembly being finished, and the vote taken for 
dissolving the present Assembly, the moderator shall 
say from the chair, — " By virtue of the authority dele- 
gated to me, by the church, let this General Assembly 

which arise therein; — that, in like manner, a representa- 
tion of the wbole should govern and determine in reeard 
to every part, and to all the parts united ; that is, that a 
majority shall govern : and consequently that appeals may 
be carried from lower to higher judicatories, till they be 
finally decided by the collected wisdom and united voice 
of the whole church. For these principles and this uro- 
cedure, the example of the apostles, and the practice of the 
primitive church, are considered as authority. 



FORM OF GOVERNMENT. 



be dissolved, and I do hereby dissolve it, and require 
another General Assembly, chosen in the same man- 
npf, to meet at on the day 

of A. D. " — after which he shall pray 

and return thanks, and pronounce on those present 
the ipostolic benediction. 



CHAPTER XIII. 

OF ELECTING AND ORDAINING RULING ELDERS AND 
DEACONS. 

I Having defined the ofl&cers of the church, and 
the judicatories by which it shall be governed, it is 
proper here to prescribe the mode in which ecclesias- 
tical rulers should be ordained to their respective of- | 
fices, as well as some of the principles by which they ! 
shall be regulated in discharging their several duties, j 

II. Every congregation shall elect persons to the 
office of ruling elder, and to the office of deacon, or 
either of them, in the mode most approved and in use 
in that congregation. But in all cases the persons 
elected must be male members in full communion in 
the church in which they are to exercise their office. 

III. "When any person shall have been elected to 
either of these offices, and shall have declared his 
willingness to accept thereof, he shall be set apart in 
the following manner: 

IV. After sermon, the minister shall state, in a con- 
cise manner, the warrant and nature of the office of 
ruling elder or deacon, together with the character 
proper to be sustained, and the duties to be fulfilled 
by the officer elect : having done this, he shall propose 
to the candidate, in the presence of the congregation, 
the following questions : — viz, 

1. Do you believe the Scriptures of the Old and New 
Testaments to be the word of God, the only infallible 
rule of faith and practice ? 

2. Do you sincerely receive and adopt the confession 
of faith of this church, as containing the system of 
doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures ? 

3. Do you approve of the government and discipline 
of the Presbyterian church in these United States ? | 

4. Do you accept the office of ruling elder (or deacon, j 
as the case may be) in this congregation, and promise ' 
faithfully to perform all the duties thereof? I 

5. Do you promise to study the peace, unity, and j 
purity of the church? I 

The elder, or deacon elect, having answered these ! 
questions in the affirmative, the minister shall address I 
to the members of the church the following question : j 
— viz. I 

Do you, the members of this church, acknowledge i 
and receive this brother as a ruling elder, (or deacon) 
and do you promise to yield him all that honor, 
encouragement, and obedience, in the Lord, to which 
his office, according to the word of God, and the con- ^ 
stitution of this church, entitles him ? 

The members of the church having answered this 
question in the affirmative, by holding up their right 
hands, the minister shall proceed to set apart the 
candidate, by prayer, to the office of ruling elder, (or ; 
deacon, as the case may be) and shall give to him, and I 
to the congregation, an exhortation suited to the ' 
occasion. 

V. Where there is an existing session, it is proper 
that the members of that body, at the close of the 
service, and in the face of the congregation, take the i 
newly ordained elder by the hand, saying in words to ' 
this purpose, — " We give you the right hand of fellow- 
ship, to take part of this office with us." \ 



VI. The offices of ruling elder and deacon are both 
perpetual, and cannot be laid aside at pleasure. No 
person can be divested of either office but by deposition. 
Yet an elder or deacon may become, by age or in- 
firmity, incapable of performing the duties of his 
office ; or he may, though chargeable with neither 
heresy nor immorality, become unacceptable, in hia 
official character, to a majority of the congregation to 
which he belongs. In either of these cases he may, 
as often happens with respect to a minister, cease to 
be an acting elder or deacon. 

VII. Whenever a ruling elder or deacon, from either 
of these causes, or from any other, not inferring 
crime, shall be incapable of serving the church to 
edification, the session shall take order on the subject, 
and state the fact, together with the reasons of it, on 
their records. Provided always, that nothing of this 
kind shall be done without the concurrence of the 
individual in question, unless by the advice of pres- 
bytery. 

VIII. If any particular church, by a vote of mem- 
bers in full communion, shall prefer to elect ruling 
elders for a limited time in the exercise of their func- 
tions, this maybe done; provided, the full time be not 
less than three years, and the session be made to con- 
sist of three classes, one of which only shall be elected 
every year: ?in^ provided, that elders, once ordained, 
shall not be divested of the office when they are not 
re-elected, but shall be entitled to represent that par- 
ticular church in the higher judicatories, when ap- 
pointed by the session or the presbytery. 



CHAPTER XIV. 

OF LICENSING CANDIDATES OR PROBATIONERS TO 
PREACH THE GOSPEL. 

I. The Holy Scriptures require that some trial be 
previously had of those who are to be ordained to the 
ministry of the gospel, that this sacred office may not 
be degraded, by being committed to weak or unworthy 
men ; and that the churches may have an opportunity 
to form a better judgment respecting the talents of 
those by whom they are to be instructed and governed. 
For this purpose presbyteries shall license probationers 
to preach the gospel, that after a competent trial of 
their talents, and receiving from the churches a good 
report, they may, in due time, ordain them to the 
sacred office. 

II. Every candidate for licensure shall be taken on 
trials by that presbytery to which he most naturally 
belongs ; and he shall be considered as most naturally 
belonging to that presbytery within the bounds of 
which he has ordinarily resided. But in case any 
candidate should find it more convenient to put himself 
under the care of a presbytery at a distance from that 
to which he most naturally belongs, he may be received 
by the said presbytery, on his producing testimonials 
either from the presbytery within the bounds of which 
he has commonly resided, or from any two ministers 
of that presbytery in good standing, of his exemplary 
piety, and other requisite qualifications. 

III. It is proper and requisite that candidates ap- 
plying to the presbytery to be licensed to preach the 
gospel, produce satisfactory testimonials of their good 
moral character, and of their being regular members ol 
some particular church. And it is the duty of the 
presbytery, for their satisfaction with regard to the 
real piety of such candidates, to examine them re- 
specting their experimental acquaintance with religion, 
and the motives which influence them to desire the 

519 



FORM OF GOVERNMENT. 



iacrfcd oflBce. This examination shall be close and 
particular, and, in most cases, may best be conducted 
in the presence of the presbytery only. And it is 
recommended that the candidate be also required to 
produce a diploma of bachelor or master of arts, from 
some college or university : or, at least, authentic 
testimonials of his having gone through a regular 
course of learning. 

IV. Because it is highly reproachful to religion, and 
dangerous to the church, to intrust the holy ministry 
to weak and ignorant men, the presbytery shall try 
^ach candidate as to his knowledge of the Latin 
language ; and the original languages in which the 
Holy Scriptures were written. They shall also ex- 
amine him on the arts and sciences; on theology, 
natural and revealed; and on ecclesiastical history, 
the sacraments and church government. And in order 
to make trial of his talents to explain and vindicate, 
and practically to enforce, the doctrines of the gospel, 
the presbytery shall require of him, 

1. A Latin exegesis on some common head in 
divinity. 

2. A critical exercise ; in which the candidate shall 
give a specimen of his taste and judgment in sacred 
criticism ; presenting an explication of the original 
text, stating its connection, illustrating its force and 
beauties, removing its difficulties, and solving any 
important questions which it may present. 

3. A lecture, or exposition of several verses of 
scripture ; and, 

4. A popular sermon. 

V. These, or other similar exercises, at the dis- 
cretion of the presbytery, shall be exhibited until they 
shall have obtained satisfaction as to the candidate's 
piety, literature, and aptness to teach in the churches. 
The lecture and popular sermon, if the presbytery 
think proper, may be delivered in the presence of a 
congregation. 

YI. That the most eflfectual measures may be taken 
to guard against the admission of insufficient men into 
the sacred office, it is recommended that no candidate, 
except in extraordinary cases, be licensed, unless, after 
his having completed the usual course of academical 
studies, he shall have studied divinity at least two 
years, under some approved divine or professor of 
theology. 

VII. If the presbytery be satisfied with his trials, 
they shall then proceed to license him in the following 
manner : The moderator shall propose to him the 
following questions : — viz. 

1. Do you believe the Scriptures of the Old and 
New Testaments to be the word of God, and only 
infallible rule of faith and practice ? 

2. Do you sincerely receive and adopt the confession 
of faith of this church, as containing the system of 
doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures? 

.3. Do you promise to study the peace, unity, and 
purity of the church ? 

4. Do you promise to submit yourself, in the Lord, 
to the government of this presbytery, or of any other 
presbytery in the bounds of which you may be called ? 

Vlil. The candidate having answered these ques- 
tions in the affirmative, and the moderator having 
offered up a prayer suitable to the occasion, he shall 
address himself to the candidate to the following pur- 
pose : — " In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and by 
that authority which he hath given to the church for 
!ts edification, we do license you to preach the gospel, 
wherever God in his providence may call you : and 
for this y)urposo, may the blessing of God rest upon 
you, and the Spirit of Christ fill your heart. — Amen !" 
520 



and record shall be made of the licensure in the 
following or like form: — viz. 

At the day of 

the presbytery of having received testi- 

monials in favor of of his having gone 

through a regular course of literature ; of his good 
moral character; and of his being in the communion 
of the church ; proceeded to take the usual parts of 
trial for his licensure : and he having given satis- 
faction as to his accomplishments in literature ; as to 
his experimental acquaintance with religion ; and as 
to his proficiency in divinity and other studies ; the 
presbytery did, and hereby do, express their approba- 
tion of all these parts of trial : and he havinj; adopted 
the confession of faith of this church, and satisfactorily 
answered the questions appointed to be put to candi- 
dates to be licensed ; the presbytery did, and hereby do 
license him, the said to preach the Gospel 

of Christ, as a probationer for the holy ministry, 
within the bounds of this presbytery, or wherever 
else he shall be orderly called. 

IX. When any candidate for licensure shall have 
occasion while his trials are going on, to remove from 
the bounds of his own presbytery into those of another, 
it shall be considered as regular for the latter pres- 
bytery, on his producing proper testimonials from the 
former, to take up his trials at the point at which they 
were left, and conduct them to a conclusion, in the 
same manner as if they had been commenced by them- 
selves. 

X. In like manner, when any candidate, after licen- 
sure, shall by the permission of his presbytery, remove 
without its limits, an extract of the record of his keen- 
sure, accompanied with a presbyterial recommendation, 
signed by the clerk, shall be his testimonials to tho 
presbytery under whose care he shall come. 

XI. When a licentiate shall have been preaching for 
a considerable time, and his services do not seem to be 
edifying to the churches, the presbytery may, if they 
think proper, recall his license. 



CHAPTER XV. 

OF THE ELECTION AND ORDINATION OF BISHOPS OR 
PASTORS, AND EVANGELISTS. 

I. When any probationer shall have preached so 
much to the satisfaction of any congregation, as that 
the people appear prepared to elect a pastor, the ses- 
sion shall take measures to convene them for this pur- 
pose : and it shall always be a duty of the session to 
convene them, when a majority of the persons entitled 
to vote in the case, shall, by a petition, request that 
a meeting may be called. 

II. When such a meeting is intended, the session 
shall solicit the presence and counsel of some neigh- 
boring minister to assist them in conducting the 
election contemplated, unless highly inconvenient on 
account of distance ; in which case they may proceed 
without such assistance. 

III. On a Lord's-day, immediately after public 
worship, it shall be intimated from the pulpit, that all 
the members of that congregation are requested to 
meet on ensuing, at the church, or usual 
place for holding public worship ; then and there, if 
it be agreeable to them, to proceed to the election of a 
pastor for that congregation. 

IV. On the day appointed, the minister invited to 
preside, if he be present, sh
